Project Isaiah 

Project Isaiah, the Jewish community's annual High Holidays food drive benefiting the Community Food Bank, occurs around the High Holidays each year.

The project is named for the Prophet Isaiah, who when asked why we fast on Yom Kippur, responded, "Is it not to share your bread with the hungry?" (Isaiah 58:).

The Jewish Community Relations Council, part of the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona's community engagement department, coordinates this project. Bagged donations may be dropped off at local synagogues and Jewish agencies. Most needed items include peanut butter, cereal and granola bars, canned soups, canned fruit, rice and pasta, beans, canned meats and vegetables.
