Goodman JFS will host their first Annual Feed the Need event benefiting The Cupboard, our kosher food pantry. This inaugural event’s theme will be “IT’s All About the Jackmans” and will honor Steve & Michele Jackman. The Jackman’s have been a crucial part of the Cupboard’s launch.
The Cupboard, a Goodman Jewish Family Services Program
The Cupboard is a program of Goodman Jewish Family Services. A kosher food pantry that aims to wipe out Jewish hunger in Broward County, The Cupboard is supported entirely by donations from the community. Kosher food is obtained from a partnership with Feeding South Florida, community food drives, and retail store donations.
The goals of the Cupboard are to:
- Target JFS clients and the Jewish community, and provide emergency assistance and referrals to anyone who is hungry
- Be a second “front door” to JFS and intake portal for people in need to access other JFS services
- Serve 400 people in year one, 1,000 people by year three, and 1,800 by year five
- Serve the community where people come to “shop” for goods by appointment
- Recruit volunteers to make food deliveries to seniors and families not able to come to “The Cupboard”
- Make deliveries and facilitate “pop-up pantries” in various locations around the county
