The Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center’s annual Hunger Drive supports the Island Food Pantry. During the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur holidays, the Drive distributed empty grocery bags (generously donated by Cronig’s) to all those who attended services. Stapled onto the bags was a letter describing the Hunger Project and asking that congregants return the bags filled with non-perishable foods. On Wednesday, September 18, the students from the Hebrew Center’s religious school delivered the donations to the Island Food Pantry.
According to Armen Hanjian, Island Food Pantry coordinator, this is the largest annual donation of food that the Pantry receives.
