How to Donate Food

More South Jersey residents are facing food insecurity than ever before. JFCS is here to nourish individuals of every age, faith, and background who are struggling to put nutritious food on the table. We rely heavily on community donations to stock the shelves of our Betsy & Peter Fischer Food Pantry. When donating food, please consider our “most needed items” below – and be sure to check for the kosher symbols on the packaging. Questions? Contact Deena Neuwirth at (856) 424-1333 or
