About this Meal Train page
Calling all Etz Chaim Volunteers for Rebecca's Tent. Etz Chaim is to provide meals for the Sherarith Israel Women's Shelter Feb. 5 - Feb 18. We need your help.
The Shelter now accepts meals that are kosher, non-kosher, vegetarian, homemade or any restaurant take-out or delivery.
In trying to maintain a safe environment, we request meals that can be easily subdivided into containers by the shelter staff in the kitchen at the shelter. The containers will be provided by the shelter, and washed and reused. A microwave will be available for the women to reheat their meal, as needed. Obviously if the food arrives in individual containers, we will serve it that way. We hope this will reduce contact between the staff and the food and make everyone feel comfortable with the food handling.
We are still working out many details, keeping in mind the vulnerability of homeless women at this time. Certainly we will update you with any changes that may affect the meals we count on, but for now are hoping to fill in the calendar with our loyal volunteers
