  • BJEP Family Table Distribution Day (off-site)
    Time: 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

    This special Family Day is designed to celebrate the BJEP community. Please plan to stay at Family Table with your children.

    Family Table is the largest kosher food pantry in New England. As volunteers we will be setting up the pantry, sorting food donations, packaging orders for recipient families, and delivering to recipients many of which are unable to drive or lack transportation.

    Please plan to attend Family Table with your children and keep in mind we will be using our own cars so you may want to coordinate carpools to make the delivering more fun! Read more about volunteer and recipient experiences at Family Table:
