Yad Ezra ~ The Helping HandWe are a nonprofit humanitarian aid charity organization. We help by providing food to all people in need without discrimination and without cost. Yad Ezra ~ The Helping Hand provides food to kosher and non-kosher food banks as well as operating a soup kitchen and food/clothing pantry. We and our 50 plus volunteers supply over 1000 meals per month.
|"I and my son are very grateful for your help. Your assistance with food is greatly appreciated. So little for one, means so much for an other. What you are doing means so much to me." Elizabeth D.|
The food banks we furnish food to are able to supply needed groceries to numerous families and individuals. We supply both kosher and non-kosher food banks. Staples like rice and pasta along with soup, cereal and vegetables are given, helping to stave off hunger for so many.
We host a Community Supper the third Sunday of each month where a hot meal is served to all those who can attend. Also on Community Supper Day, we deliver hot meals to senior homes and shut-ins.
