Please stand beside us to make a difference. We need your help to extend these meals to those in need! 

Dear Friends,

What a blessing it is to have a home - with cupboards stocked with food - where we can share meals with family and friends. Yet in several nearby neighborhoods, many people do not have dependable and regular access to food. 

Beginning this fall, we will be opening and running a soup kitchen -- a safe, clean, uplifting environment to service underprivileged and under-resourced families. Karen Nochimowski, from MommaChef.com will be donating her time to facilitate the Soup Kitchen. 

Every Tuesday evening, “Momma Chef’s Soup Kitchen at Congregation K.I.N.S.” will provide a four-course homemade hot dinner, as well as bagged lunches to-go.

Here’s where YOU are needed.

In order to serve 8,000 meals during the first year at no cost to our guests, the soup kitchen must be funded by generous donations and sustained by committed and compassionate volunteers. Momma Chef menus will be used to create delicious and nutritious meals AND a take-home bagged lunch for about $700 per night - that’s about $4 per meal, less than the cost of a latte at our local coffee shop. 

We know that there are many worthy causes vying for your support, but for our Soup Kitchen 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go toward the meals. That’s right, every single dollar will go to people in need.  

- There are NO administrative costs because all of Karen's time will be donated.  
- There are NO staffing costs because the kitchen will be staffed by volunteers. 
- There are NO facility charges because we are giving our beautiful space free of change.  
- “Congregation K.I.N.S.” is a 501(c)(3) charity, so the full amount of your donation will be tax deductible.
 
Please stand beside us to make a difference.  “Momma Chef’s Soup Kitchen at Congregation K.I.N.S.” needs your help to extend these meals to those in need! 

Friends, we are so fortunate. Won’t you share some of your abundance with others? Could you stretch your bounty to sponsor one week of meals for $700? Or one month of meals for $2800? Remember: every dollar of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to feeding others.

Beyond your own personal donation, please consider asking your workplace or a local business to sponsor a meal as well. What a wonderful way for a company to give back, and how amazing would it be for employees to volunteer together? 

With appreciation of your support, 

Rabbi Matanky and Karen Nochimowski
