Tali celebrates her Batmitzvah by thinking of others21/10/21
Batmitzvah girl Tali Field together with her family and the food collection she organised for charities GIFT and Foodbank aid.
When deciding how to celebrate her Batmitzvah, Tali Field, a JFS year 7 student, told us that after a year of volunteering together with her family & friends at GIFT‘s London Hub, she felt inspired & compelled to do something meaningful for the community and to organise a food collection.
She explains “GIFT is an amazing charity and for my Batmitzvah I wanted my friends and family to join with me helping the community by donating necessary food for GIFT & for Foodbank aid to distribute.”
Michelle Barnett Founding Director noted “We were so grateful to have had Tali, her mum Debra, together with their family & friends volunteering over lockdown; and their food collection on the occasion of her Batmitzvah has been a real help to our foodbank. Supporting over 1000 people across London & Manchester with weekly food support parcels means that we are in constant need of additional food supplies & new sources.
