About Us

Ladles of Love has launched, mobilizing volunteer groups to participate in the important cause of offering one kosher meal per month to individuals in need. The program’s goal is to ensure access to a nutritious meal for valley citizens who are not able to access kosher food. Each meal is prepared and distributed by loving volunteers, dedicated to providing for the valley Jewish community.
