This is the best organization on the planet. They truly help the needy, the sick and the poor. They have helped me so much…words are not enough to express my gratitude. I wouldn’t be here if it not were for their help. On that note I’d like to thank Goodman JFS from the bottom of my heart for listening to my plea and helping me and my disabled son. Many blessings, especially for Melinda. You are loved.

Your food delivery to me has helped my situation very much. Being able to receive Kosher food and additional items from The Dorit & Ben J. Genet Cupboard are the only sure security I have as I don’t have much income. I thank you so much.

-Anonymous Dorit & Ben J. Genet Cupboard Client

Not only is the food and delivery service from The Dorit & Ben J. Genet Cupboard great, but the spirit of everyone within Goodman JFS is truly gracious, godly, and first class. You are some of the most wonderful people I have ever met. Everyone who has ever brought me food makes me feel important and respected.

Great organization. They help many people from different backgrounds.

-Erica Jarrett

I am grateful to The Dorit & Ben J. Genet Cupboard for their unconditional love and support providing necessary food assistance as I await a decision for disability assistance due to various issues that I am suffering through. I have no transportation or means to support myself. Without the kindness of the staff and volunteers, I don’t know what I would do.

So, thank you to the Cupboard and Goodman Jewish Family Services for being the only organization that has come to my aid. There aren’t enough words for my gratitude.
