Autumn Pesach Food Appeal

Eating or not eating kitniyot during Pesach is a personal choice.

Experiencing food insecurity is not.

Kitniyot are legumes, peas, lentils, grains, and seeds such as rice, corn, sunflower and sesame seeds that many Jews refrain from eating during Pesach (Passover).


While we may debate whether or not to eat kitniyot at this time,  there is no debate that these foods are staples which can improve the diet of people experiencing food insecurity.

During our Pesach Appeal, unopened kitniyot and chametz may be donated to synagogues in each state. Please contact your synagogue to see if they are collecting.

If you are in Melbourne, you can donate directly to one of our five street pantries in Caulfield, East St Kilda, Notting Hill, Oakleigh and South Melbourne.

You can also make a financial donation to keep our pantries well stocked.

If you prefer, we will shop for street pantry items on your behalf. Please choose your donation amount below. All monetary donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Please note that your selection is a donation, and no goods will be shipped.
