Pesach  Food  Appeal

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

Experiencing food insecurity is not.

While we may debate eating rice, corn, soybeans, peas, lentils and legumes during Pesach, there is no debate that these foods are staples which can improve the diet of people experiencing food insecurity.

Donations of unopened packages of kitniyot (and chametz) can be dropped at the following synagogues in Melbourne:

  • Blake Street Hebrew Congregation

  • Brighton Shule

  • Etz Chayim

  • Kedem

  • Kehilat Nitzan

  • Leo Baeck Centre

  • Temple Beth Israel

You can also take food directly to one of our street pantries:

  • Alma Road Community House--200 Alma Road East St Kilda

  • Notting Hill Neighbourhood House--37 Westerfield Drive Notting Hill

  • Fusion South East Melbourne--185 Warrigal Road Hughesdale

​​If you would prefer, we will do the shopping for you. 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.)
