Libby Urie Food Pantry
“Providing charity for poor and hungry people is as important as all the other commandments of the Torah combined.” Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Baba Batra 9a
On a monthly basis, hundreds of community members are helped through the JFS Food Pantry. The JFS Food pantry is stocked with non-perishable items, including both Kosher and non-Kosher food items and personal care items, such as toothpaste, shampoo and toilet paper. JFS also accepts gift cards that can be given out to families. Volunteers are needed for stocking shelves, packing boxes, running food drives and delivering food to local community members or to other partner food pantries. JFS partners with “Save the Bananas,” a project developed by Lee Casher of Lee’s Good Eats, to expand our ability to help local community members achieve a higher degree of food security.
