One Million-Plus Pounds of Matzah To Be Distributed in FSU

The matzah is sold at cost price to those who can afford to pay and the rest is distributed free to the elderly and needy. Every day, dozens of trucks full of Passover packages are delivering their passover cargo to communities across the country.
