The 2022 JFS Community-Wide Food Drive begins Sunday, September 25 with announcements at Rosh Hashanah and culminates with the Food Sort on Sunday, October 16. The Food Sort is an excellent opportunity for individuals, families and groups to help the Polack Food Bank sort and organize thousands of pounds of donations. A special thank you to our dedicated volunteers and community partners who step up each year to make this all possible.
Volunteers make contactless deliveries of Kosher Shabbat meals to community members two Fridays per month.
Volunteers harvest produce and weed garden beds as needed. This opportunity is best for ages 8 or older—please consider your child’s ability to wear a mask and gloves for the entire two hours in varying weather conditions before signing up.
Volunteers collect, transport and sort gleaned produce at the end of the market day. Volunteers should be able to lift at least 25 pounds for this opportunity.
Mentors help support and coach highly-skilled individuals in reestablishing their careers in the U.S. Mentees in the program have advanced degrees and years of experience in a professional field. The benefits of a one-on-one relationship include expansion of professional networks, trust with an industry expert and the opportunity to learn from one another. The professional mentor role is one of shared responsibility and mutual benefit. We are often looking for professionals from, but not limited to: Law, Engineering, Computer Science / Information Technology (I.T.) / Data Analytics and/or Business Management.
