Interfaith effort feeds hungry families

by: Observer Staff

East County teenagers at Temple Emanu-El are among the participants in an innovative interfaith effort to aid hungry children.

In cooperation with St. Martha School, Temple Emanu-El Religious School students gather every other week to prepare backpacks filled with nutritious, kid-friendly foods. The backpacks are distributed on Friday afternoons by All Faiths Food Bank to local children whose families would otherwise go hungry during the weekend.

Among the East County residents active in this program are Temple Emanu-El’s Social Action Committee leaders Dorothy Quint and Emily Tennenbaum, Director of Religious Education Sabrina Silverberg, Administrative Assistant Jodie Meyers, and more than a dozen students.
