Did you know that each month, Jewish Family Services provides more than 800 families with food and non-perishable items through the two locations of its food pantry? Approximately 50 percent of the items in the pantry are donations from the public through JFS food drives.
While JFS is happy to accept any shelf-stable food or personal care items, the most needed things for this month are pasta, kidney beans, and canned fruit. On Sunday, Jan. 16 from 10 a.m. to Noon JFS will hold its monthly Communitywide Food Drive at the Jewish Community Center campus. Please drop off donations in barrels located in the front circle drive.
Donations can also be dropped off in the JFS barrel in the Jewish Community Campus’ lobby during business hours or at the Brookside office with appointment by calling (816) 333-1172. Donors may also purchase items for the food pantry directly through the JFS Pantry Wish List on Amazon or make a financial contribution to the pantry at jfskc.org.
