Feeding the hungry is a mitzvah that must be fulfilled year ’round. Every year, in the spring, the value of our donations to Jewish Family & Career Services to fight hunger is increased as the agency participates in the Feinstein Challenge.
For the 16th consecutive year, Alan Shawn Feinstein, through the Feinstein Foundation of Cranston, RI, will divide $1 million among hunger-fighting agencies nationwide to help raise funds during March and April 2013. Jewish Family & Career Services is one of the participating agencies in the event and will receive a portion of the funds.
All donations to the JFCS Food Pantry of food, canned goods and grocery gift cards, as well as monetary donations to the Sonny & Janet Meyer Family Food Pantry Fund during this period, will be matched as part of the Feinstein Challenge to Fight Hunger.
Many families and individuals use the JFCS Food Pantry throughout the year, enabling them to use their very limited resources to pay for other items while JFCS helps with the basic food needs. JFCS distributes more than 40 tons of food annually.
Past Feinstein Challenges to Fight Hunger have raised a record $1.5 billion for hunger-fighting charitable agencies nationwide.
Make a donation to JFCS today and become a partner in the most successful grassroots campaign of all time to fight hunger. Food donations can be delivered to JFCS Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monetary and credit card donations are also accepted via mail or on JFCS’s web site, www.jfcslouisville.org.
