Good Deeds Day 2021

Let's do good together! Join the Jewish Federation of Cleveland as we celebrate this global day of good deeds! Families and individuals of all ages are invited to volunteer and take action as we help feed the hungry.

Three ways to get involved:

Help feed Cleveland families at-risk for hunger with your favorite casserole/lasagne

  • Start making your favorite casserole/comfort food in an aluminum foil pan(s) now
  • We will provide you with a label to list key ingredients and place on the top
  • Freeze your casserole(s)/lasagne(s)
  • On Sunday, April 18, drop off your frozen casserole to the Jewish Federation (25701 Science Park Drive, Beachwood) any time between 10 am – 2 pm
  • Volunteers will take the casseroles to local organizations that support families and individuals in need

Take action! Advocate for policies to end food insecurity

There are several ways to end hunger in addition to donating food items and money. Mazon, a national organization fighting to end hunger, advocates to our State and Federal government to provide extra funds to communities struggling with food insecurity. You can advocate too!
