Maot Chitim of Greater Chicago has provided food to needy Jewish people in the community since 1908. They have helped those in need celebrate the holidays in a traditional and dignified manner for over 100 years by delivering 5,000 boxes of traditional food during Passover and 5,000 boxes during Rosh Hashanah, which feeds approximately 25,000 needy, low-income Jewish people in the Chicagoland area ranging in age from infants to the elderly.
Maot Chitim also provides an opportunity for the entire Jewish community to join together to perform a mitzvah. Over 1,500 volunteers — teenagers, seniors, and young families — have an eye-opening experience packing and delivering food each holiday. It is an unforgettable tzedakah experience for children, parents, and grandparents.
