Jewish Community Food Fund

The Jewish Community Food Fund (JCFF), a program of JCS, is dedicated to fighting and preventing hunger in the Baltimore Jewish community. Monetary donations from caring community members like you are used to provide individuals and families facing hardship with grocery store cards for use at local food markets. This gives them the dignity of shopping for themselves and choosing foods they need, including perishable items like milk and eggs. Additionally, JCS staff work with each person, providing vital services and resources for regaining self-sufficiency.

Food insecurity is a growing epidemic nationally and in our Baltimore Jewish community, made worse by the escalating inflation. The physical and emotional impact can be devastating. Children from food insecure families have more illnesses, less energy, struggle in school, and experience higher rates of anxiety and depression. Food-insecure older adults are 53% more likely to have a heart attack, twice as likely to develop asthma and five times more likely to suffer from depression.

Your contribution to the Jewish Community Food Fund helps improve the health and wellbeing of friends and neighbors struggling against hunger, giving them renewed hope and peace of mind.
