"Maot Chitim" refers to the centuries old custom of gathering wheat to provide the poor with matzoh and other items for the observance of Pesach. More recently we have expanded our program to include the Rosh Hashanah holiday. Click About Us or History to learn more.

There are many ways to help Maot Chitim accomplish its noble mission. We need volunteers to help pack the food packages and to help deliver the packages. We attempt to have as few expenses as possible, however the cost of the food, boxes and other costs and expenses require us to raise money. We need your financial support now to help make the holidays brighter and more meaningful for those in need.

In 2013, almost 5,000 Pesach food packages, and nearly 5,000 Rosh Hashanah food packages, were delivered to needy Jewish families. We estimate approximately 24,000 needy people benefited from these deliveries helping them observe these holidays in a traditional and dignified manner.
