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 High Holy Days Food Drive and monitary contributions help support the 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. We hope you choose to participate in our annual food drive this year. Tangible donations and monetary donations are accepted. Please find details below.

Monetary donations can make a greater impact due to Manna’s bulk purchasing power.

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.

Please mail or bring checks to TAE by Saturday, October 12, 2024, so we can present them collectively. Make checks payable Manna.
