Breakfast Program

Location: Pavilion Door

From: Thursdays & Fridays, 6:30-7:30am

Details:

Update: In order to maintain the safety of guests and volunteers during the COVID-19 Crisis, the Breakfast Program is currently operating on a “grab-and-go” basis; guests receive a “to-go” bag of food and drink at the Pavilion door.  Staff, security, volunteers, and guests maintain a six-foot distance from one another.  Additionally, if you are interested and comfortable volunteering for the Breakfast Program during this time, please contact the email below.

The Breakfast Program, formerly known as the Caring Committee Feeding Program, is among Central Synagogue’s longest ongoing social justice projects. Originally conceived and implemented by longtime congregant Nat Shapiro in 1983, the Breakfast Program was started in response to Mayor Koch’s outcry for New York City’s religious institutions to respond to an exploding homeless and hungry problem. Today, many clients of the Breakfast Program are working poor who greatly appreciate and regularly rely on the warm, nutritious start to their day. Volunteers assemble every Thursday and Friday morning in Lese Lobby (Community House) to prepare and serve the most important meal of the day. A bag lunch is also handed out to clients. These lunches are prepared the prior evening as part of Central Synagogue’s Sandwich Making Program. Volunteers must be in the 6th grade or older; those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Sign up is required in advance to volunteer. For more information or to sign up, contact breakfast@censyn.org.
