My Shabbos Family: From Thursday packing, to Shabbos tables

My Shabbos Family: From Thursday packing, to Shabbos tables.

For Chaim, one of 200 + volunteers who unload pallets of food on Thursday nights, this isn’t just a nice chesed, but a vocation. 

“There’s something special about packing for My Shabbos Family and Tomchei Shabbos,” Chaim announces. “Everyone who shows up, they do it because they care about the community. They care about our community! The boxes aren’t packed in a rushed or hurried manner either, but packed with care. It’s a special place to spend my Thursday nights,” Chaim remarks. 

“The items we pack are of a very high quality. The foods that go in each box are delicious Shabbosdik items and foundational ingredients that I can’t imagine cooking without! It’s remarkable to see our neighbors pull through for our neighbors, that everyone in my neighborhood can cook for Shabbos happily, and with kavod.”

“If you have the means to fill another’s table this Shabbos, the zechus will stand in your favor.”
