Route Pick-Up Delivery Dates and Times

Monthly, volunteers will deliver boxes of nutritious kosher food to low-income individuals and families in Greater Philadelphia. Volunteers pick up the boxes, along with select additional items, from our warehouse in Northeast Philadelphia and follow a "route packet" of directions to recipient homes. The modified schedule for deliveries and important safety information can be found below.


Important Protocol: If you have any symptoms, including fever, cough or shortness of breath, or are feeling unwell, or if you have been exposed to someone with symptoms, please do NOT volunteer at this time. We encourage everyone to follow the guidelines from the CDC website and follow JRA's safety protocol as outline below.

JRA's clients depend on volunteers to deliver food to their homes. JRA has initiated safety protocols and procedures surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and has implemented a drive-thru model called Express Pick-Up for all deliveries and a Knock, Drop and Go policy at recipient homes. 


If you have any symptoms or believe you have come into contact with someone with Covid-19, please do not volunteer at this time. 


If you have received delivery route confirmation, please follow these instructions when picking up at the JRA Warehouse:

  • When you arrive at the JRA warehouse, please remain in your car.
  • A JRA staff member will check you in when you enter the driveway.
  • You will receive your delivery route information and follow directions to your designated loading area. 
  • JRA staff will load boxes and any additional items into your car and discuss the safety protocol in place - after which you will follow directions to the exit.


JRA's Knock, Drop and Go Policy at Recipient Homes:

  • Before you get out of the car, disinfect your hands with hand sanitizer.
  • When dropping off food to JRA recipients, please ring the doorbell and knock LOUDLY. 
  • Leave the box and return to your car. We are asking each volunteer to practice social distancing.
  • Wait a moment to confirm if the recipient received the box. 
  • If the recipient doesn't answer the door, please call the number listed next to their name. To block your phone number, dial *67 followed by the number. 
  • Let the recipient on the phone know that their box has been delivered. Please leave a message if necessary. If there is a language barrier, please contact the JRA warehouse at (610 - 660 - 0190 ext. 106) so we can follow-up with the recipient.

JRA Food Distribution Dates​

Please reserve a delivery route and pick-up time prior to arrival at the JRA warehouse. A JRA staff member will reach out to confirm your route assignment.

We understand that situations change, and kindly request that if you are no longer able to deliver your assigned route, that you contact us ASAP so we can reassign it to another interested volunteer.
