Now more than ever, it is important to support The Ark, a local Jewish agency, which serves more than 4,000 people a year by providing support, shelter, and food through its pantry. Synagogue High Holy Day Food Drives provide The Ark with enough food to last through the winter. Drop off your donation in the Beth Emet parking lot on Yom Kippur, October 5 or Sunday, October 9.

Below is a list of requested items. Please note all food donations must be certified kosher and have an expiration date at least six months from now (March 2023). The Ark does not accept Del Monte or Kirkland canned vegetables. Additionally please do not bring any items in glass containers.
