Nutrition Education At The Pantry

For clients at the JFCS Squirrel Hill Food Pantry, food insecurity may be long or short term. It is influenced by income, employment, race/ethnicity, age and disability. The risk for food insecurity increases when money to buy food is limited or not available.

Our services at the JFCS provide a holistic support – meeting needs from food, critical financial support, employment services, senior services and more. Our goal is to provides the support, resources and referrals needed to help each family or individual through changes and challenges they are experiencing.

When a client walks into the food pantry, they are met with helpful information and resources. A the JFCS Squirrel Hill Food Pantry, we distribute whole grains and fresh produce. Each month, our partners at the Pittsburgh Food Bank share nutritious and affordable recipes with ingredients found at our pantry. Each recipe outlines the ingredients needed, time required, nutrition and cost of the recipe.
