Poverty & Hunger

While we’re lining up for our morning lattes, children right here in New York City are going to school without breakfast. Or lunch. Or a full night’s sleep in a bed they can call their own. Halfway around the world, one in three Israeli children lives in poverty. 94% of the country’s elderly poor lack the resources to buy necessities and live with dignity.

Time for Good will help you channel your passion to combat poverty and hunger into action. You can help deliver a Shabbat or holiday meal to a hungry New York family, pack clothing donations for Israeli children, or participate in projects that help struggling families here and around the world.

Want to do good fighting poverty and hunger? Now’s the time.
