Encouraging Hands-On Social Action
Soup-er Sunday is one of JTI’s largest service-learning programs. It takes place around Mitzvah Day International, an international day of service encouraging people all over the world to take part in hands-on social action in November.
Here on the North Shore, 100+ youth, teen and adult volunteers prepare and cook various foods, and then deliver the food to local emergency and family shelters as a pre-Thanksgiving meal. Each year we look for soup-er heroes to help with cooking, set up, clean up and/or delivering food and the day begins with pizza for lunch. Guest chefs are always on hand for culinary inspiration and instruction; no cooking expertise is required!
SAVE THE DATE FOR THIS PROGRAM ON 11/24.
