The Mitzvah of Food, in the spirit of Passover

From Team Tikkun Olam

In the season of Passover’s spirit of freedom, welcoming the stranger, sharing of food, and caring for our community, it will be a mitzvah to support the local non-profit organizations that are providing food to the food insecure and the home-bound in Yolo County.

Mitzvah opportunities filled with Passover spirit are waiting for you. Consider donating the cost of the Seder or meal you are not sharing with your family and friends. Be a mensch today!
