fighting hunger together

As we fast on Yom Kippur, we remember those in our community who go hungry on a regular basis. This year we are reviving HaMakom’s tradition of a food drive during the High Holy Days, with the twist of a partnership with Temple Beth Shalom.

At Rosh HaShanah services, we will be distributing empty grocery bags and a list of most-needed food items. The filled bag can be dropped off in the lobby of Temple Beth Shalom through the 10 days leading up to Yom Kippur. The food will be given to The Bag n' Hand Food Pantry at St. John's United Methodist Church.

Another option is donating money directly to The Food Depot of Santa Fe, via its website thefooddepot.org or by sending a check to The Food Depot, 1222 A Siler Road, Santa Fe, NM 87507.

Opportunities for Action

The Climate Justice Alliance, Communities United for A Just Transition is leading an effort to prevent legislation that would fast-track permit approvals for new fossil fuel projects and gut the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), which ensures communities' rights to protect themselves. The proposed legislation emanated from backroom negotiations over the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and undermines the effectiveness of the climate provisions of the IRA. To learn more and access a list of things you can do now to prevent such legislation from becoming law, click the following link:
