To be notified, for yourself or someone else, when food is available for pick-up, with complete confidentiality, contact shearithaplate@gmail.com; to schedule a pick-up, call 201-835-5338

Shearit HaPlate of Bergen County, Inc. is once again coordinating a community-wide post-Purim collection of leftover mishloach manot food, to be distributed to people in need.
