In a nutshell, I am a doer. It started when I was talking to a buddy of mine about his doctor friend, who basically moved into the hospital to run a Covid-19 floor at the height of the pandemic. He was working a 24 hour shift and I felt the least I could do was feed his unit.
My sister in-law is a doctor on the front line at Winthrop Hospital. She was telling us about how amazing it was that so many places stepped up to the plate and started feeding the doctors, nurses, and hospital staff. Unfortunately, none of it was kosher. So I saw a need and ran with it.
In essence, through Kosher Response, I saw a way to both support our local kosher small businesses and feed our hero’s at the same time. From there I have seen the amount of people who have been affected by this pandemic economically and financially, and so I moved Kosher Response into Phase 2 where we have been assisting thousands struggling with food insecurity through various programs we started.
