The Jewish Family Services Food Pantry needs your support to help those facing food insecurity.
Monthly the Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City and area congregations host food drives to help stock the two locations of Jewish Family Services Food Pantry. With the combination of COVID-19 and the wintry weather, donations are needed more than ever.
During March, the focus of the JFS Community Food Drives is personal hygiene and Passover items. Personal hygiene items include shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body wash, bar soap. Passover items needed include grape juice, Matzo ball soup mix, and Passover cake mixes.
Donors are asked to pull into a designated parking space on the west side of the building and call the number listed; a volunteer will pick up items directly from cars.
The JFS Food Pantry is monthly serving more than 900 families and their pets from its two locations, and the numbers continue to grow. For Passover, JFS will provide 150 families with appropriate items to enjoy a traditional holiday meal. JFS relies on food drives and donations for 50 percent of the products it distributes. One in four individuals receiving assistance from the JFS Food Pantry also benefits from one or more additional services the agency provides.
If you miss the opportunity to donate during the Community Food Drives, donations can be delivered at the JFS barrel in the lobby of the Jewish Community Campus during business hours. Donors can also make a financial contribution to purchase items for the pantry online.
