Tomchei Shabbos Gearing Up for Massive Pesach Distribution

tsPHOTOS: Lakewood’s Kimcha D’pischa fund – a project of Tomchei Shabbos – is getting ready for their Massive Maos Chitin distribution.

The distribution center this week took delivery of:

6500 lb Matzoh, 8400 lb fish, 12,000 bottles of grape juice, 56,000 lb meat and poultry, 117,000 lb produce, as well as all other necessary Pesach food items, organizers say.

“People think that the food just shows up and gets distributed,” says one of the organizers. “In reality, there are hundreds of hours involved in setting up the intake and arrangements of each individual order. This is besides the hours and hours of time we spend reviewing the needs of the 550+ families.” [TLS]
