Feed the Community
Congregation B’nai Israel has partnered with Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church for 37 years to provide a hearty meal to thousands of community members in need during the week of Thanksgiving.
During these uncertain times, it is more crucial than ever to help those who would otherwise go without. This year we have made adjustments to ensure that everyone’s health and safety is the top priority.

THERE WILL BE NO CBI VOLUNTEERS
AT EBENEZER CHURCH THIS YEAR,
DUE TO CDC-COVID19 RESTRICTIONS
EVENT DETAILS: On Tuesday, November 24th, community neighbors that might not have the means, will be invited to Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church to walk – up or drive- by to pick up everything needed for a bountiful Thanksgiving feast. A frozen turkey, a bag of groceries traditional for Thanksgiving, fresh fruit, and vegetables, boxed Subway lunches, drinks, and desserts will be provided for approximately 300 individuals and families.
WAYS TO PARTICIPATE: For everyone’s health and safety, this year Ebezener’s Pastor and Deacon have chosen a small group of only their experienced volunteers to manage the food distribution outside of the Church the day of the event. CBI Members, Family, and Friends can make a donation, CBI Members and School Families can host a neighborhood Thanksgiving food drive (teens will earn 2x service hours) and participate in a drive-thru no contact food collection. Your donations and collections will help us provide approximately 300 individuals and families a memorable Thanksgiving experience.
