Ecumenical Hunger Program (EHP): For more than two decades, Beth Am volunteers have helped sort, package and distribute food for families through EHP in East Palo Alto. Throughout the year, we also collect and give toys and clothing to members of EHP who are in need.

Hope's Corner Breakfast Distribution: Beth Am is part of an interfaith group providing meals to Hope's Corner in Mountain View. We are need of (aged 16+) volunteers to do food preparation under the direction of Hope’s Corner staff.

High School High Holy Day Food Drive: Beth Am high schoolers organize an annual High Holy Day Food Drive. Teens pass out paper grocery bags on Rosh Hashanah, to be returned on Yom Kippur, filled by congregants with canned and packaged food. The food collection benefits the Jewish Family and Children's Services, working to keep local food banks stocked and ready to provide over 10,000 meals per month to our struggling neighbors.
