Senate bids to add kosher food to emergency food distribution
An amendment under consideration in the U.S. Senate would add kosher food to emergency food assistance.
The amendment, introduced last month by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), earned the endorsement of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, the umbrella body for Jewish public policy groups, in a letter sent June 7 to other U.S. senators.
"The organized Jewish community is committed to ensuring basic human rights for everyone, including the right to eat," the letter said. "We must consider the diversity among those seeking nutrition assistance and their varied needs."
