About Tomchei Shabbos
Tomchei Shabbos operates from one small warehouse. The volunteers gather the food from local merchants and wholesalers, pack the cartons and deliver them to the families. There are no administrative costs.
Your entire contribution is used for the Shabbos packages.
The annual budget of Tomchei Shabbos is almost three quarters of a million dollars. This money goes directly to cover the cost of food.
There are no paid employees. Wherever possible, the food is ordered directly from the wholesale source. Over 400 families receive help from this organization. Neither the packer nor the driver knows the identity of the recipient.
Preparing for Yomim Tovim and especially Pesach is a huge undertaking. In addition to the fruit, vegetables, milk, eggs and chicken which are usually included, matzos, potato starch and other key Pesach foods are added.
The volunteers of Tomchei Shabbos are deeply committed. In the more than 30 years, every single package has been delivered, regardless of the weather.
