    One case of eggs for a family?

    That sounds like a lot of eggs for one family. Why not split the case in half and that way you can give to double the amount of families.

    a lot more than 50

    Suggestion

    Why don´t you rent trucks and have the food delivered to the people all packed according to thier needs the way it is done in Monsey. They use Rockland Kosher boxes and delivery trucks so that it looks to anyone that sees the boxes being delivered as if it is a delivery from the store. There is no embarrassment to the people recieving. This has to be done in a more respectful way. Making these people shlep to the Brooklyn Navy Yard just doesnt seem right to me….

    not everyone bakes cakes galore.
    I know of many people left with lots of extra dozens of eggs long after Pesach is over.

    One suggestion:

    Families can “share” boxes, and inform the community council, if they will not need eggs, since they will be splitting, with another family (or two).

    Children also eat eggs. As in fried – hardboiled- etc. With my eight kids i usually buy 4 dozen eggs a week normally.

    some families don’t bother getting tickets because they don’t have a car to pick up, also about cases of eggs, if packages would be prepared according to size of family, wouldn’t need to give case of eggs to small families.

    Thank you

    I was a little… dissapointed about your explanation last week, but this is nice and productive and allows for people to help in a real way, and I want to thank you for really coming around. Shows what a mentch you are, i dont just have to believe the comments that say it. Also, it is nice that you are telling the public exactly what is needed: transparency is important. PEOPLE: no need to analyze the figures. a box may make sense for some, not so much for others. but that’s not what matters. having people call in with exactly… Read more »
