Kosher Food Bank recipients are able to select from non-perishable staples and canned goods, fresh produce, meat and frozen items. They ‘shop’ during pre-arranged, scheduled appointments to ensure privacy and confidentiality. Kosher Food bank supplies critically important food items and other daily necessities, as well as evaluates clients’ overall needs and arranges for appropriate support services. Because dignity is of the utmost concern, private one-on-one appointments are scheduled at convenient times.
How the JCS Kosher Food Bank Helps
Often the need for food is a symptom of underlying crises in the family. That’s why everyone visiting the Food Bank meets with a JCS professional who performs a comprehensive evaluation to assess the family’s overall needs. These might include information about government benefits, or access to one of JCS’ many programs such as mental health services or employment counseling
The JCS Kosher Food Bank greatly relies on everyone’s participation. To help combat hunger in our community – one meal, one person at a time – you can:
- Donate kosher food and other items certified as kosher (see shopping list)
- Donate funds
- Organize a food drive or other mitzvah project
- Become a volunteer
Please note, all items must be certified as kosher and have one of the following symbols:
2056 NE 155th Street, North Miami Beach, FL 33162
