WILLIAMSBURG - A nonprofit organization is packing special care boxes to help the Jewish community celebrate Passover dinner.

Workers, volunteers and local leaders gathered Wednesday at the Citymeals-on-Wheels warehouse in Williamsburg to help pack and stack kosher foods for the upcoming Jewish holiday.

The organization is packing over 4,000 boxes that will go out to 18,000 senior citizens who are unable to shop or cook for themselves but still want to celebrate the tradition of Passover.

Each box contains the equivalent of eight meals. Some foods inside the box include poached salmon, beef brisket, matzo and grape juice.

Citymeals-on-Wheels has been caring for senior citizens since 1981. 

Shipping of the boxes will start Thursday to ensure that they get to homes before Passover starts on April 3.
