No-Contact Food Drives in June
As our community returns to a sense of normalcy, JFCS continues to see consistency in the number of people still experiencing food insecurity. In May alone, over 260 individuals and families utilized the JFCS Sonny & Janet Meyer Food Pantry. Of these, nearly 100 were children under the age of 18 and almost two dozen were senior adults aged 60 or older.
Our Food Pantry addresses their needs with help from generous financial donations and in-kind donations of food and personal care items that people, like you, have made this year. To help us continue to meet the needs of our community, we are excited to announce our no-contact food drives for June 2021.
Join us on Sunday, June 13 from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm and Wednesday, June 30 from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. as we accept donations for the JFCS Sonny & Janet Meyer Food Pantry. This no-contact food drive will allow you to drive up to the JFCS building at 2821 Klempner Way and drop off your donations without leaving your car.
You can participate by donating regular sized (not travel or bulk sized) items our community needs most, including:
- Kidney beans
- Baked beans
- Brown rice
- Canned salmon
- Canned chicken
- Coffee/tea (no pods)
- Dried fruit
- Graham crackers
- Snack bars
- Jellies and jams
- Oatmeal in canisters
- Salad dressing
- Soup and pasta in boxes
At this time, JFCS cannot accept glass containers. Mark your calendars to make your donation drop off on Sunday, June 13 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. and Wednesday, June 30 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.* Please wear a mask and remain in your car when you arrive, and a JFCS staff member or volunteer will collect your items.
You can also make monetary donations in support of the food pantry by visiting our secure, online giving form today.
