The pantry is open Monday and Wednesday 11-2 pm each week.

Our Staff

According to the Atlanta Community Food Bank, before the pandemic, one in every 8 people in Georgia was food insecure*. 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.

Our Volunteers are Here to Help
