Bar Mitzvah Boy completes local food drive 

12th September 2021

On 1 September 2021, 12-year old, local Borehamwood boy, Eytan Wittenberg, ran a food drive collecting non-perishable food from family, friendsneighbours and the wider community, and donating it to the Borehamwood Foodbank.

As his Bar Mitzvah project, he was looking for a way to give back, and wanted to be able to help his local community.

He said: “I love food and can’t imagine having to go without, so as well as a month-long campaign with posters, videos and messages to collect food from my family, friends, neighbours and the local community, I fasted for 13 hours throughout the collection day, I was lucky enough to have a big meal at the end, but I know not everyone is that fortunate.”

The Foodbank packaged up this food and will give it to people in need during the next twice-weekly Foodbank sessions, which run on a Monday afternoon and a Thursday morning.

Thanks for all your hard work, Eytan. The food is gratefully received and will help lots of families in the local area.
