Passover

Food Lifeline believes that no family should have to enter Passover with feelings of stress. Instead, we are committed to ensuring that the holiday is celebrated with dignity and contentment.

Over a two week period, our volunteers undertake the extensive operation of filling hundreds of parcels with matzah, wine, and candles – amongst other general food items – to ensure that our recipients are well taken care of.

“As a parents of a son with a costly medical condition, amongst 4 other children, the responsibility of putting food on the table is a daily challenge. With hours of care devoted to our dear child, we are forced to cap our work hours at our jobs, both of which are low-paid. Between fights over food, and sibling rivalry, the tension in the house is palpable.

As Passover was approaching, we were looking forward to this joyous festival, yet we were dreading the repercussions of the additional expenses of Matzah and wine, as well as the strained family dynamics while everyone was home. With no choice, we resorted to seek assistance from Food Lifeline.

We cannot express our sincere gratitude for the generous help we received. Boxes filled with 2 weeks’ supply of all our Passover needs were delivered to our doorstep. We were finally able to focus all our energy on our special son and his devoted siblings, giving them a calm, peaceful and happy Passover experience.”

“As a 76 year old retired pensioner suffering from a complicated terminal illness as well as mobility issues, I was heavily dependent on my wife’s devoted care over the years. With her sudden recent passing and little family support, I was thrown off balance, unprepared to face the future, sinking into depression and losing my will to live. As Passover was approaching, I could not fathom celebrating the festival alone.

Then, just as unexpectedly, all my festival needs were taken care of as Food Lifeline’s Passover packages, arrived on my doorstep. The enclosed encouraging notes showed me someone truly cared. And it didn’t end there. The kind-hearted volunteers referred me to a wonderful organisation that supports both my physical and emotional health.

May you always be able to continue your important work and please relay our heartfelt thanks to your special volunteers and supporters.”
