JFS Community-Wide Food Drive and Sort
The 2019 JFS Community-Wide Food Drive begins September 29 with announcements at Rosh Hashanah and culminates with the food sort on October 30. But it’s never too early to get started and get organized!
Food Drive September 29 – October 20
The Food Drive is our community’s opportunity to come together to collect and donate non-perishable food and toiletries for the Polack Food Bank and its clients.Two bags of groceries can mean up to 10 meals a month. Last year, together we collected more than 2,000 bags of food to provide over 10,000 meals to clients! Our goal is to collect even more this year!
Start a food collection for your school, organization or company today!
Thank you to all of our partners who have signed up to participate. If you would like to start a food collection at your school, organization or company, please contact Volunteer Services for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
