How To Get Help

At JF&CS, we understand that more people in our community may need to access our Kosher Food Pantry during this crisis. For the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and clients, please wear a mask when you visit the pantry. The pantry is located in the parking lot next to the IndependenceWORKS building.

Food Pantry Pickup Hours: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays 11 am - 2 pm. No appointments or referrals are needed. All are welcome.


How You Can Help

Since March of 2020, JF&CS has expanded our Food Pantry to help the growing number of people in our community that are facing food insecurity, many for the first time. We need your help to ensure we will have the resources meet the need in our community.

There are numerous ways you can support the Kosher Food Pantry, including:

• Become a food collection site!
• Donate food at the JF&CS Dunwoody Office in the outside bins, or one of our community collection sites.
Donate funds to the food pantry. You have a choice of creating your own team or donating to the general Food Pantry fund.
• Purchase items from our Amazon Wish List to be delivered to the Pantry.
• Organize a food drive with your school, worksite, place of worship, or neighborhood.

Our Staff


One in every 7.5 people in Georgia uses a food pantry as their main source of food. JF&CS’ food pantry is one of the only kosher food pantries in the Southeast. Though we serve both Jewish and non-Jewish clients, we realize that purchasing kosher foods can pose an additional financial burden.

Our food pantry provides kosher foods so clients do not have to compromise their religious traditions due to financial limitations. Additional food assistance may be provided to those in need in the Jewish community in the form of Maos Chitim at Passover or the High Holidays.
