JRA Food Distribution Dates​

Once a month, JRA volunteers of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities meet at our Northeast Philly warehouse to pack and then deliver boxes of nutritious kosher food to over 6,000 low-income individuals and families. During this time, volunteers will pack 3,200 boxes of food, including fresh produce, for families in need. In addition to the standard food box, volunteers also pack family friendly food bags and toiletries for some of our recipients.
