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? Food drives help ensure our guests have a wide variety of items to select from and keep expenses down.
While JFS is happy to accept any shelf-stable food or personal care items, for the most needed items for November, we are asking donors to assemble Thanksgiving Meal Kits. The meal kits consist of:
1 box of stuffing
2 cans of pumpkin pie filling or canned fruit filling
2 cans of green beans (have enough on hand for pick-up to share)
1 can of mushroom soup
1 bag or box of mashed potatoes
1 to 2 cans of sweet potatoes or yams
2 boxes of macaroni and cheese
1 bag/box of rice
1 roll or cornbread mix
1 jar or gravy packet
1 package of french fried onions.
On Sunday, November 20, 2022, from 10 a.m. to Noon, JFS will hold its monthly community-wide food drive at the Jewish Community Center campus. Please drop off donations with volunteers who will be 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 an appointment by calling 913-327-8250. Donors may also purchase items for the food pantry directly through the JFS Pantry Wish List on Amazon.
