Caring for Ourselves and Others: Project Sandwich for Maple Street Shelter

Taking action to help others while we shelter in place requires some creativity, but the need for tikkun olam is greater than ever. 

During normal times our religious school students work together at CBJ to make hundreds of lunches for our neighbors in need, and we call this Project Sandwich. Now that we’re all sheltering in place, we hope CBJ members will work at home in the spirit of Project Sandwich to provide lunches for the LifeMoves Maple Street homeless shelter in Redwood City.  Volunteer groups are not allowed to serve the usual buffet meals at the shelter while the Covid-19 restrictions are in effect. The shelter can only accept meals that are packaged individually, so we’ve signed up to deliver 40 bag lunches.


Please sign up here if you can help!  

  • DONATE LUNCHES:  As explained in the signup sheet, we need several volunteers to buy or make food then drop it off at one volunteer’s house.  That person will pack the food into lunch bags and deliver it to the LifeMoves Maple Street shelter.  Everyone who participates must wear a mask and gloves when touching food.  If someone in your household is ill, please do not participate.  
  • DONATE CLOTHING AND TOILETRIES: In addition to food, the LifeMoves shelter network is always in need of new clothing (especially socks, underwear and bras) and toiletries. Just drop off items at the delivery person’s house by the specified date, or directly at the shelter.


Thank you for your help!!
