Robert Peltz (z”l) High Holidays Funds for Food

CBI speaks: Suzanne Bomanici on the urgent problem of food insecurity.

As the High Holidays approach, please give generously…

The Oregon Food Bank tells us:

In “normal” times OFB feeds about 270,000 people each month and about 92,000 of them are children. Today 1 in 5 households with children 12 and under are experiencing food insecurity.

The coronavirus has closed schools and community centers, creating gaps for countless kids and seniors.

We can help!
