The Mandy Reichman Feeding Program is back and better than ever thanks to our partnership with the JCC of Central NJ!
This program is in partnership with:
We are partnering with JCC of Central NJ on behalf of the Mandy Reichman Feeding program which provides food and support to less fortunate, needy families in Union County. Together with the JCC each month, we pack 150 sandwiches and 100 emergency food bags for Jewish family services.
The Mandy Reichman Feeding program, also known as Bagged with Love, was founded in in memory of Mandy Reichman (daughter of long-time Temple Emanu-El preschool teacher Meryl Reichman) who was passionate about feeding those in need.
