Kosher Food Pantry

The Only Kosher Food Pantry in the Southeast

One in every 7.5 people in Georgia uses a food pantry as their main source of food. JF&CS’ food pantry is the only kosher food pantry 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 Mao Chitim at Passover or the High Holidays. We also provide grocery store gifts cards to clients in need.

The food that we distribute is collected through Project Isaiah, a collaboration with the Atlanta Community Food Bank and the Jewish community, and through generous individual donations throughout the year. Feeding America delivers produce weekly to share with pantry recipients.

Last year, our food pantry provided 22,000 pounds of food to 2100 individuals, 350 of whom were seniors.
