For over 30 years, on the 4th Tuesday of the month, Barnert Temple has provided a meatloaf dinner for the residents of this facility.  At any time feel free to make large 2-3 lb meatloaves and store them in the Temple’s freezer.  Just make sure they are dated and labeled "Men's Shelter.  You can also buy frozen vegetables to store in the freezer as well as bottles of salad dressing, jars of beef gravy, tubs of cream cheese and margarine and place them in the Temple refrigerator.  Just make sure you label them "Men’s Shelter."

Check the weekly weekly Social Justice eblast for the SignUp Genius link that will alert to the items we need each month.  We also accept monetary donations to cover the cost of this monthly meal when collecting food donations is not possible (e.g., during the High Holidays).  Simply visit and select COVID-19 Food Relief from the drop-down list or send a check, payable to:
