Giving gifts of food is a mitzvot of Purim and with the UH Purim project, it’s easy to fulfill the Mitzvah of Mishloach Manot.

You also have the option to “turn on reciprocity” automatically sending a bag to anyone who sends one to you!

Each family will receive one bag with a message from everyone who is sending them Purim wishes. Additional bags may be purchased if you wish.
