Jews Donate Food to US Federal Employees Affected By Government Shutdown

Just those pesky Jews bringing light to the world again…

With no end in sight in the partial government shutdown — now in the start of its fourth week — the Flushing Jewish Community Council and Masbia of Queens are assisting federal employees and their families with boxes of donated food items and hot dinners.

At Masbia of Queens, a nonprofit soup kitchen network and food pantry — located at 105 64th Rd #47 in Forest Hills — federal employees are welcomed to pick up hot delicious meals and groceries.

“It takes time for the middle-class person without a paycheck to make the psychological switch to take charity,” said Rapaport. “I don’t think we have seen many yet but we also have a no questions ask policy.”

Here the Rapaport family of the Masbia Food Kitchen are going around the airport handing out circulars offering free food/groceries to TSA agents who are not getting paid due to the Government shut down.

Makes me proud even prouder to be part of the Jewish people.
