Annual Kol Nidre Food Drive




Would you like to support our local food bank? CBI is participating in the annual Kol Nidre Food Drive.  You can help by getting a paper grocery bag, with instructions, from CBI during the pickup times for other High Holiday items or by filling your own bags from home. Please drop off filled bags at the CBI foyer.  Volunteers will bring them over to the Northampton Survival Center.  Please do not bring food directly to the Northampton Survival Center. 

You can also donate money. By making a financial contribution to the Center, you are helping to ensure that a thousand local schoolchildren have three meals a day, every day; that hundreds of seniors have food and medication; and that every household has food in its cupboards. With your help, nobody in our area goes hungry on our watch.  The Survival Center can buy more food for less dollars.  During these times are you not able to go out and buy groceries?  Donate money directly to Northampton Survival Center at 265 Prospect Street, Northampton.
