Food Pantry

The Jewish Community Alliance facility is now open to the public, and we are following official guidelines for the health and safety of our community. All visitors, program attendees and staff must wear masks in the indoor public spaces of the JCA, regardless of vaccination status, including children age 2 and older. For our full policy, please click here. The KJFS food pantry will remain closed as we restructure. Over the next few months, we will continue to offer both in-person and virtual activities to meet your needs and keep you engaged and connected. Please follow us on social media, check back here often, and sign up for our emails to stay up to date!
