“Unprecedented” is an understatement when describing the growth in recipients, budget, and food boxes that Tomchei Shabbos has experienced in recent years. Take the sheer number of boxes delivered over the years; if we travel back to the beginning of the millennium, an already quite respectable 15,000 boxes were delivered in the year 2000, and by ‘05 that number had expanded to 25,000.
Then came the crash of ‘08 and the ballooning influx of families to Lakewood, and by 2010 their operations had shot up to 93,000 boxes per year. With continuing expansion around Jackson, Howell, and Toms River, as 2015 came to a close, 115,000 food boxes were sent out by Tomchei Shabbos. [click here to help]

In 2020, Tomchei Shabbos had delivered Three Hundred and Twenty Three Thousand Boxes throughout our community!
