Fanchon Simons' Feeding the Hungry
Sunday, August 20 & Sunday, September 17 at 9:00am

Each month, volunteer members of Am Shalom gather in the kitchen to pack 400 lunches for people in need. It just takes about an hour and is rewarding for folks of any age!

Drivers are needed to deliver the food! We need help transporting these lunches to those in need at Another Chance Assembly (5136 W Division St, Chicago, IL 60651).

Please click here to sign up for a driving shift!

As we do every year, Am Shalom will collect non-perishable food and hygiene items for The ARK. Donations can be brought to the storage shed in our north parking lot beginning September 15. The shed will be there through the High Holy Days. Please click here for a list of the items most urgently needed. Prefer to make a monetary donation? Click here.
