38th annual feed the community at Congregation B’nai Israel

A Thanksgiving to Remember!

Congregation B’nai Israel has partnered with Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church for 38 years to provide a Thanksgiving feast for members of our community. Our neighbors were invited to Ebenezer Church on Tuesday, November 23 to pick up everything needed for a bountiful holiday meal.

Thank you to our CBI family for supporting this annual event with donations of food or harvest baskets, sponsoring a table, donating a meal or hosting a neighborhood collection. This year's event helped feed over 300 individuals and families!

For questions about this event, please contact Minda Shaiman at 561.241.8118.

We are collecting the following non-perishable food items at CBI to donate to hundreds of families in our community:

Mashed potato mix, canned cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, canned sweet potatoes, stuffing mix, cornbread mix, juice boxes, individually wrapped cakes and cookies, applesauce (no glass please) and Halloween candy (no chocolate please)

Please drop off your donations in the bins in CBI’s Admin Circle during these times:

  • Monday 11/15 9:30am-11:30am or 3:30pm-5:30pm
  • Wednesday 11/17 9:30am-11:30am or 3:30pm-5:30pm
  • Friday 11/19 9:30am-11:30am

Fall Harvest Boxes

Our Fall Harvest Boxes are filled with farm-fresh produce including sweet potatoes, potatoes, apples, green beans, onions, zucchini and carrots. Order an extra Fall Harvest Box to donate to Feed the Community when you purchase one for your family. Donations will be delivered directly to Ebenezer.

Host a Neighborhood Food Drive

A great way to help us collect non-perishable food items for our initiative is to host a Neighborhood Food Drive. Simply set up a box in your neighborhood to collect donations and invite your friends and neighbors to participate. We will supply you with a flyer and sample letter that you can use to spread the word. Plus, students can earn community service hours for their efforts.

Please contact Minda Shaiman if you are interested in hosting a Neighborhood Food Drive and/or for community service hours.
