Bnos Bais Yaakov facilitates a weekly free food distribution program which fed 5,556 children from 1,401 families — with seven truckloads, 1,600 boxes of food — through the assistance of 25 volunteers.
BBY recognized the position that many families in the community find themselves in during the current situation. Many are facing significant hardship that impacts a family’s ability to provide three healthy meals for their children every day. Under the leadership and direction of the school’s trustees and executive committee, BBY’s executive staff is spearheading the coordination of the program. The program provides breakfast and lunch free of charge to all children in Far Rockaway and the Five Towns communities regardless of income status.
Thank you, Senator Joe Addabbo, Councilwoman Stacey Pheffer Amato, Yoni Dembitzer, and Rabbi Mosey Kaplan.
