JRA Sunday Food Distribution
September 11 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
(9 – 10 a.m.)
A reserved hour for families with young children under the age of 12 to pack boxes of kosher pantry staples, produce and household supplies using push carts.
All Ages Packing:
(10 – 11:30 a.m.)
Volunteers of all ages are welcome to pack kosher pantry staples, produce and household supplies into the JRA boxes in our food-packing assembly line. Volunteers will either carry boxes down the line to be filled, or hand out food and other items to be placed into the box.
(9 a.m. – 2 p.m.)
JRA’s model of food delivery allows recipients to receive assistance directly to their door, alleviating some of the challenges they may face, such as transportation, language barriers or access. Volunteers will choose a delivery route that can have anywhere from one to 15 addresses. Deliveries may be to individual homes, garden-style apartment complexes or high-rise apartment buildings. Volunteers will arrive at the JRA warehouse and proceed through our drive-thru where they will receive instructions and the items for their delivery. Volunteers are more than welcome to deliver a route after packing in the warehouse. The average delivery time is about one hour.
Groups are welcome at all of our Sunday distribution shifts. For more information about JRA’s volunteer schedule, please visit jewishrelief.org/calendar.
