Under the organization of Miriam Zager, Fay Kuhn and Ilene Ringold, twenty-six women gathered at the JCC kitchen Sunday morning, January 29, for the Women’s Philanthropy Cooking for the Community portion of the Jewish Federation’s Mitzvah Day.
Divided into various cooking stations, including vegetable chopping, cookie making, fruit slicing and casserole baking, the volunteers cooked 33 meals. They then packed up all the food to be distributed to older adults in the Lehigh Valley through the Mazal Meals program of the Jewish Family Service.
Of course there was plenty of schmoozing throughout the three-plus-hour event.
Volunteers are still needed for the Holocaust Resource Center Organization. Plenty of dates and times are still open for you to register.
