Ending Hunger in Broward County
In response to the growing problem of food insecurity, Goodman Jewish Family Services of Broward County opened The Dorit & Ben J. Genet Cupboard (the Cupboard) in 2017. The Cupboard currently serves more than 600 families, including 171 Holocaust survivors. It’s estimated that pre-pandemic nearly 260,000 Broward County residents did not know where their next meal was coming from — that’s 13.6 of the population — and that number has grown exponentially this past year.
Each month, Cupboard clients receive a variety of nutritious kosher food, including fresh produce, canned goods, and frozen items. To help make this possible, more than 300 volunteers give their time to assist their neighbors in need.
We are here to help.
The Cupboard is supported entirely by community donations.
As we launch the 2021-2022 Campaign to Feed the Need, you can join the countless number of people and our community sponsors — Feeding South Florida, The Jewish Federation of Broward County, Publix Super Markets Charities helping to eliminate hunger in Broward County’s Jewish community.
