Community Outreach

Feeding Our Community

After making the sandwiches, we bring them to the Salvation Army in downtown Bradenton. They put out the word that the sandwiches are coming, and they deliver them directly to their clients. We have been making these sandwiches since the spring of 2020. We cycle them in every other Thursday. People in the community have come to view these sandwiches as a resource that they can count on.  In many cases, the sandwiches can be picked up in your home. We work to make the program safe for both contributors, and the people receiving the food. If this sounds like a project you might be interested in joining, please contact Ken Handelman

The Temple Beth El Men's Club is the sponsor of a Mitzvah Project designed to supply peanut butter sandwiches to our neediest neighbors. The idea is to provide food that is nonperishable and easily transportable to people who in many cases are both hungry and homeless.
