Help Us Fight Hunger in South Jersey

Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Southern Jersey (JFCS) is asking for your help. As we struggle to keep found on our shelves, more and more families struggle to feed their loved one, like never before. You can help us stop hunger today by donating food or volunteering to sort, pack and stock food from the Purim Food Drive, which will be held on March 30 at 10:30 AM at Congregation M’Kor Shalom.

The JFCS and Peter Fischer Food Pantries in the 1st Quarter of FY 2014 have seen a 50% increase in the demand for bags of food, compared to the 1st Quarter of FY 2013. It’s time to fight back.

All donations can be dropped off at your synagogue or to JFCS for the Purim Food Drive. Donations can consist of canned vegetables, pasta, canned fish, peanut butter, canned fruit, rice, jelly, and boxed milk. All foods should be Kosher approved. Register your family (ages 12 and older) with the JFCS at 856-424-1333.
