Passover food drive held in Brighton Beach

Jewish residents from across the borough flocked to a Passover food drive today in Brighton Beach. The Shorefront Jewish Community Council packed up traditional meals for the 1,300 families in attendance. Volunteers provided a full chicken, bag of potatoes, matzah, grape juice and macaroons. Organizers say the majority of clients are usually single mothers, the unemployed and the elderly, but that people between the ages of 25 and 45 are showing up more and more. Passover begins April 6 at sundown.
