Working Together To Feed Families

September is Hunger Action Month, a national call to action to feed families and connect them to food assistance programs. Food insecurity is on the rise – at JFS, our Kosher Food Pantries have distributed 3 times more food this year as the same period last year. Many working families just can’t make ends meet as salaries are not keeping up with the rising cost of essentials like food, gas, clothing and more.

 

Fighting hunger requires a community effort, and JFS is very grateful to both individual and corporate donors committed to helping us feed local families. On September 28th, branch managers from Investors Bank dropped off food donations collected at a recent employee event. For JFS, we are only able to support our community with the help of organizations like Investors Bank whose leadership encourages its members to give back and create an impact.

JFS Food Pantries Are A Call Away

"Receiving food from JFS has helped us a lot. Food in the stores today is so expensive! JFS makes sure that the food is good, and they do quality control to ensure that it is not expired."

 

For Mrs. M and her daughter, the current uncertainty of when prices at the grocery store will stabilize is overshadowed by their daily need to eat and purchase food they can afford. This mother-daughter duo mentioned they were referred to JFS by a friend who noted their struggle and advised them to call to receive food. While hesitant at first, Mrs. M found her family's need overwhelming and is grateful for the support and food provided by JFS to make it through the month. 

 

Have a loved one or neighbor who could use some food assistance? JFS Kosher Food Pantries are just a call away at 732-777-1940. We serve all Middlesex County residents.

Health Fairs For Seniors 

Throughout this month, Amboy Bank, a partner of JFS Senior Nutrition programs, has been hosting Senior Health Fairs at each of their bank branches. Health fairs for seniors and caregivers are important to connect seniors to appropriate health information, resources and preventative assessments. JFS is grateful for the opportunity to support local seniors with Amboy Bank.

If you know a senior in need of assistance, contact JFS at 732-777-1940 or donate online. Thank you!
