As Texas residents grapple with a severe winter storm, Lakewood residents have been busy cooking up a different storm. At around 6:00 p.m. last night, Lakewood resident Baruch Brog contacted Yehuda Kaszirer of Bikur Cholim, stating he needs to get meals over to residents of Dallas, Texas who are struggling as a result of the winter storm.
The storm left many of the Frum community without electric and water, making it difficult to prepare proper Shabbos food. Within hours, a team of Bikur Cholim and other volunteers were cooking and baking fish, Kugel, cholent, you name it.
The food, enough for 250 families, was loaded into a van and set off for Texas, an approximately 24-hour drive. Upon arrival, the food will be distributed by Chaveirim of Dallas.
Shabbos meals in a box are being supplied by Kosher Palate, with the assistance of Bikur Cholim of Lakewood, NJ. There is no need to pre-order. These are fully subsidized, free meals for Shabbos for those in need. Pickup times from two convenient locations are:
- Kosher Palate: 3-4:30 PM
- Shaare Tefilla: 3-4 PM
