COMMUNITY SOUP KITCHEN
Adas Yoshuron sponsors the Community Soup Kitchen at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Rockland on the first Sunday of each month. Members plan the meal, purchase the food, prepare it and clean up after. Soup Kitchen is a family affair. Our children participate, and it is a tradition that the Hebrew School children host one of the lunches themselves. Scroll down to see announcements of the yearly Easter and Christmas Community Dinners we have sponsored. These holiday dinners are especially rewarding for our volunteers, who enjoy setting beautiful tables with fresh flowers and serving a sumptuous feast while other Soup Kitchen organizers celebrate at home with their families. We generally serve 30 to 40 people. Setup begins at 12:15 p.m. and we serve the meal at 1:00 p.m. Clean-up is complete by 2:15 p.m. To volunteer or to offer to contribute items to the Soup Kitchen, consult Lisa Breheny, President of Adas Yoshuron and Soup Kitchen Coordinator, by contacting the synagogue office (207-594-4523) or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. New participants are always welcome. See Community Soup Kitchen under How-To for information about how our members run the Soup Kitchen.
AIO Food Pantry in Rockland has been serving the residents of Knox County for more than 20 years, providing food from their collective food pantry, emergency financial assistance, and referrals to social service agencies. An average of 315 families (650 to 700 individuals) are served each month. Adas Yoshuron collects canned and boxed foods in the multipurpose room and announces special collections, usually during the High Holy Days.
