Social Action - Dinner in a Bag

Sunday, February 28, 2021 16 Adar 5781

2:00 PM - 3:00 PMBeth Tikvah Congregation

THANK YOU to all who signed up - All 180 meals have been purchased!!!

Food insecurity is at an all time high. This year, for the Social Action Annual Purim project, we are creating what we are calling “Dinner in a Bag”  to meet the needs of families of the Living Faith Church in Palatine.  We have been supporting this church for a number of years through our monthly “Brown Baggers” program by providing sack lunches to assist those in this congregation.
While the bagged lunches are helpful, many of these families continue to struggle to feed their families nutritious meals.
In response to Pastor Bullock’s request for more assistance, this new project will provide a shelf stable meal to those in need.

  • We have received a generous donation to subsidize this project. If you’d like to participate in this mitzvah, but need some assistance to purchase the items, please contact 

With your generous donations, our goal is to provide 180 meals!



o   1  16oz. bag of dried pinto beans

o   1  16oz. bag of rice

o   1 package (12 or more) of tortillas

o   1   8oz (or larger)  jar of salsa

o   2   15oz cans of corn or beans
