Project Ezra 2022

“Baking is not a small act at all; it’s an act of  love, it’s an act of charity, it’s an act of kindness and compassion. I hold that in my heart every time that I bake — that something as simple as a chocolate chip cookie might mean the world to someone.”

For many of us, the cold weather means it's time to bake, cook, prepare, and provide for those in need through Project Ezra. Project Ezra is an annual shared tradition between Temple Isaiah and Temple Shir Tikvah of Winchester. Each year, we come together to cook, bake, prepare, and package home-cooked meals for over 500 local people in need.

Last year, more people than ever requested meals. This year, our goal is to cook and deliver 525 meals to over 200 households (families, seniors, and veterans) in a covid-safe way. Below are some ways you can help:

• Count and distribute food containers 2 weeks in advance (at Temple Isaiah).

• Be a courtesy caller - call and check in with volunteers to remind them of their commitment one week in advance.

• Prepare food items in your home and package food into containers (containers will be provided).

• Deliver food items to Temple Isaiah on Friday, December 23 with the balance being delivered on Saturday, December 24.

• Decorate holiday cards that will be attached to the meal bags (a great activity for families with young children).

• Deliver meals to families, seniors, and veterans in need.

• Make a financial donation here.
