High Holiday food drives a resounding success

Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS) hosted a number of successful High Holiday food collections. The outpouring of generosity from Adath Emanu-El, Congregation Beth El, Congregation Beth Tikvah, Congregation Kol Ami, Hadassah, and Temple Beth Sholom, as well as dozens of individual community members, enabled the agency to restock the shelves of its Betsy & Peter Fisher Food Pantry.

Inflation continues to have a serious impact on our community. With the price of food and household necessities at an all-time high, more and more people are looking to JFCS for assistance. In 2022, the agency helped nourish more than 8,264 South Jersey residents, and our community’s need for food support shows no signs of subsiding.

For those who have not yet had a chance to donate food to JFCS and would still like to, the outdoor collection bin at the Rhona Fischer Family Assistance Building (6 East Miami Avenue in Cherry Hill) is open 24/7.
