Hunger is something we see and face everyday. DHAP is a community service project for teens to learn, respond, and advocate on hunger and homeless issues in New York. Students deliver food to the homeless and learn how to advocate on behalf of the less fortunate. It’s a great mitzvah and also a great way to earn community service hours for your school.

Students meet one Saturday night per month (6:30pm – 10:00pm) with Jewish educators and rabbis to study and to serve.

6:30 – 7:00 Pizza Dinner & Havdalah
7:00 – 7:45 Guest speakers and study session
7:45 – 8:15 Prepare meal bags and life packs
8:15 – 10:00 Deliver to the homeless with adult supervision
