|The Rodgers Family helping at Pearl Street Cupboard & Café|
There are many people in our community who find themselves worried about where their next meal will come from. Pearl Street Cupboard & Café, located in Framingham, supports such individuals and families by providing food assistance and services that promote self-sufficiency. They rely on volunteers to carry out most of their work.
We at Congregation B'nai Torah are excited to partner with Pearl Street Cupboard & Café by sending 8 volunteers to serve meals to their patrons on a the second Wednesday of every month. Depending on the month, we are drawing volunteers from specific groups (e.g., students, committee members, etc.) or from the congregation at large.
