For the 16th consecutive year, Alan Shawn Feinstein, through the Feinstein Foundation of Cranston, RI, will divide $1 million among hunger-fighting agencies nationwide to help raise funds during March and April 2013. JFCS is one of the participating agencies in this event to receive a portion of the funds.Â All donations during this period to the JFCS Food Pantry of food, canned goods and grocery gift cards, as well as monetary donations to the Sonny & Janet Meyer Family Food Pantry Fund, will be matched as part of the Feinstein Challenge to Fight Hunger.
Many families and individuals use the JFCS Food Pantry throughout the year, allowing them to utilize very limited resources to pay for other items while JFCS helps with the basic food needs. JFCS distributes more than 40 tons of food annually.Â Â Past Feinstein Challenges to Fight Hunger have raised a record $1.5 billion for hunger-fighting charitable agencies nationwide. Make a donation to JFCS during March and April and become a partner in the most successful grassroots campaign of all time to fight hunger.
Food donations can be delivered to JFCS Monday – Friday, from 8:30 am – 5 pm. Monetary and credit card donations are also accepted via mail or on our website, www.jfcslouisville.org. Be sure to designate to the Food Pantry. Call 452-6341 for more information.
