# 3054 First Come First Served?

Q. See above question (3053). Which of the two mitzvos mentioned (gifts to the poor and shalach manos) should one do first on Purim?
A. Although the posuk mentions Mishloach Manos before Matonos Laevyonim, (Esther ). Shulchan Aruch presents the mitzva of Gifts to the Poor on (694: 1) before Shalach Manos (695: 4). (See Likutei Mahariach and Kaf Hachaim).
