Helping organize the community against hunger

The Jewish community is urged to learn about current public policies on hunger and food insecurity during an ­educational program on Thursday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m., at Beth Sholom Congregation in Elkins Park. 

The program, titled “Jewish Communal Action Against Hunger,” is sponsored by the Center for Social Responsibility of the Jewish Federation of Great­er Philadelphia, the Kehillah of Old York Road, the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger, Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger and Elkins Park Hazon CSA.


Presenters include: Samuel Chu, director of Advocacy and Organizing for Mazon; Julie Zaebst, interim executive director of Coalition Against Hunger; and Brian Gralnick, director of Jewish Federation’s Center for Social Responsibility. Local legislators and policy makers have been invited to join in the conversation.
