High Holy Days Food Drive

While many of us will voluntarily fast on Yom Kippur – too many in our local community face involuntary fasts because they lack sufficient money for food. You can make a difference!

Our food donations go to Manna (mannaconejo.org), our local food pantry that provides assistance to seniors and to others experiencing temporary setbacks and emergencies. Manna can only do its important work because of donations like ours.



  • When you arrive for Yom Kippur Services, drive through the front of TAE to drop off the food before going on to park.

  • Volunteers will be at TAE 45-minutes prior to the start of the Kol Nidre (10/4) and Yom Kippur morning (10/5) services to assist you.

  • You may also drop off your donations at any time from Tuesday, October 4, at 11:00 a.m. until Wednesday, October 5, at 4:30 p.m. Please note, the volunteers will only be there to assist at the times listed above.

  • For those attending services virtually, we invite you to drop off your donations at any times listed above.

Bring a filled shopping bag on Yom Kippur Day. 

What to Bring: All non-perishable (non-expired) food items and personal hygiene items are welcome.THE MOST REQUESTED ITEMS ARE:

  • Canned Meats (tuna/chicken)

  • Spaghetti

  • Pasta Sauce

  • Peanut Butter

  • Cookies

  • Crackers

  • Condiments (ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, salad dressing)

  • Hamburger Helper

  • Boxed Potatoes

  • Jelly/Jam

  • Coffee

  • Tea

  • Hot Chocolate

  • Shelf Stable Drinks (almond milk, fruit, carbonated)



If you are unable to drop off food, or want to make an even bigger difference, make a financial donation to Manna rather than shopping for your donation. Their non-profit, bulk purchasing power allows the money you donate to go even further.

Financial contributions can be made payable Manna and mailed to temple so that we may present them collectively to the Manna.
