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 Conejo Valley Manna Food Bank (, a 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 available to help on the following days and times:

  • September 24, Kol Nidre: 6:15 – 7:00 p.m.
  • September 25: Young Children’s Service, 7:45 – 8:30 a.m.
  • September 25: Traditional Service, 9:15 – 10:00 a.m.
  • September 25: Family Service, 1:00 – 1:45 p.m.

► Donations may be dropped off at any time on Monday, September 25, between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 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.


  • Canned Meats (tuna, chicken)

  • Canned Fruit

  • Canned Chili

  • Hamburger Helper, Instant Potatoes

  • Flavored Rice (Rice-A-Roni)

  • Hot Cereal

  • Canned Pasta (SpaghettiOs, ravioli)

  • Shelf Stable Drinks (canned, boxed)

  • Baking Items (mixes, flour, sugar)

  • Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate

No glass jars or Passover foods please. All food must be within current sell by dates.


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.
