The fourth annual Feed the Truck – a community-wide food drive led by Federation CJA’s Tikun Olam Volunteers (TOV), with the help of 10 Jewish day schools across Montreal – took place this past Wednesday and Thursday. Students collected and “fed the truck” around 20,000 non-perishable kosher food items! The donations will be distributed to Federation CJA’s funded communal organizations in the greater Montreal community that deal first-hand with food security.
