Tomche Shabbos of Rockland County has been providing free food packages for Shabbos and Yom Tov to the poor of our community since our founding, in 1973. Late each Thursday night dozens of people gather at our warehouse to assemble large boxes of food containing chicken, fish, challah, grape juice, fruits and vegetables, eggs, and canned goods. These boxes are then left discreetly at the doorsteps of poor families under the cover of darkness.
Since then, the need for food donations has grown exponentially, and we now service 500 families! It is only thanks to the generosity of kindhearted contributors that we can continue to assist poor families in need.
