Community Food Pantry

Jewish Family Service of the Lehigh Valley’s Community Food Pantry provides emergency assistance to individuals and families in the 18104 area, regardless of religion. It also serves Jews across the Lehigh Valley.

 

Stocked with food and personal items, the pantry is supported through generous contributions from our community and maintained by dedicated volunteers. JFS works in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank. Special attention is given at holidays.

 

Food pantry clients are able to choose the items they receive.

 

​Items Frequently Needed Include:

 

  • Canned tuna and salmon (small cans are best)
  • Canned fruit and vegetables (including low sodium and sugar-free)
  • Frozen vegetables and fruit
  • Powdered milk
  • Pancakes and cereals
  • Peanut butter
  • Soup (including low fat and low sodium)
  • Pasta
  • Large size diapers
  • Toilet paper
  • Supermarket gift certificates

We are also happy to accept donations of fresh produce all year long.
