On Tuesday, November 10, 4:00-7:00 pm, our seventh graders will be visiting the Community Food Bank of New Jersey in Hillside. Snack and study hall will be available for our students from 3:30-4:00 pm. Then we hope to have at least six parents drive us to the food bank. If you are able to drive, please contact Ruth Cash at by Tuesday, Nov. 3. If we are unable to have at least six parent volunteers, we will need to rent a bus. We will volunteer at the food bank 4:30-6:30 and then arrive back at the temple at approximately 7:00 pm.

We must confirm our group size one week prior to the trip, so please RSVP for your seventh grader to Ruth Cash at no later than Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 4:00 pm. We are not allowed to increase our number after Tuesday, Nov. 3.

To ensure everyone's safety at the warehouse, all participants must wear sneakers or work boots, long pants, and a t-shirt or sweatshirt. The building does not have heat so a sweatshirt or sweater is highly recommended. Participants should not wear dangling jewelry. As backpacks and purses are not allowed in the warehouse, we will have a spot for all of our students to leave their bags at the temple.

This field trip is the second of three field trips during our unit on hunger/food insecurity, poverty, and homelessness. Our third field trip will take Dec. 15.
