NEW - KJFS Food Box Pickups & Deliveries - NEW

Michael Klahr Jewish Family Services is thrilled to announce that beginning April 27th we will be offering food box pickups at the JCA, along with deliveries directly to homes of individuals and families in Cumberland & York Counties.

The food boxes have been generously provided by Wayside Food Programs and include a variety of non-perishable items. We will be delivering twice weekly, on Tuesday and Thursdays.

If you are in need, or if you know of any individuals/families who are homebound and in need of food, please contact us at 207-772-1959 or kjfs@mainejewish.org.
