Cook for a Friend with the Renaissance Group
February 8, 2016
Join us at BZBI for this Mitzvah event to prepare meals for the Jewish community members in need.
BZBI is located at 300 S. 18th Street, the corner of 18th and Spruce. When you arrive, please go up the stairs to the second floor and make a left into their kitchen, where we will be cooking. Participants will be asked to bring an ingredient to contribute to the meal.
Cook for a Friend, supported by Jewish Federation, is a community-based program comprised of more than 500 volunteers who prepare, cook and package meals for homebound seniors. Due to an increase in the aging population and downturns in the economy, their client population continues to grow, with more and more seniors unable to see to their own needs. Close to 50,000 meals were delivered to elderly, frail, homebound seniors this past year.
