High Holidays Food Drive

Community-Wide Food Drive

JF&CS High Holidays Food Drive

Start the Jewish New Year off with a mitzvah and donate food to the Kosher Food Drive.

Drop off items September 10–October 10, 2023 in JF&CS bins at your synagogue, temple, school, or at Jewish Family & Career Services.

Food from the annual High Holidays Food Drive is the main source of donations for the JF&CS Kosher Food Pantry. We need your help to continue to feed those most in need!
