Interfaith Canned Food Drive


Join Raleigh-Cary Jewish Family Services along with many other Triangle organizations, in this annual interfaith food drive, sponsored by The Light House Project and benefiting Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina

Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha and Razan Abu-Salha had big ideas for how they wanted to help the world. One of Deah’s last facebook posts was where he and Yusor were giving food and free dental supplies to the homeless. Razan was a regular at Raleigh’s Moore Square, where she too fed those in need and left personal notes for the recipients.

For the past 4 years this annual food drive has been held in their honor and to continue this important work. In that time, donations have translated into over 157,000 meals to North Carolinians in need. Will you join us this year? Check out the official event for this year on Facebook.
