We couldn’t do it without you

You can help us make sure our community has sustainable food to feed their families by making in-kind donations, volunteering, or hosting an event!

At JFCS, we are committed to helping people in need in our community, and we know that your donation can help us get there.

Your gift goes to work immediately, directly helping those who need it most. Select JFCS, or designate your gift to JFCS Squirrel Hill Food Pantry in the designation drop-down menu on the Donate page.

As we reach out to more people in our community and help them overcome barriers that keep them from being able to provide for themselves and their families, we will continue to rely on the generosity of people like you who are committed to making a difference.

In-kind donations are welcome at JFCS. We accept donations of nonperishable food, personal care items and diapers at the JFCS Squirrel Hill Food Pantry. Please call the Pantry Coordinator at 412-421-2708 to schedule a drop-off.

Want to help our community feed their families? The JFCS Squirrel Hill Food Pantry provides supplemental food to the community to combat food insecurity – and we need your help! We are transitioning back to in-person shopping again and are asking for a handful of members of the community to assist with shopping and stocking of shelves.

A “shift” would be an hour and a half on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons, from 1:20 to 2:50 PM at our Pantry location at 828 Hazelwood Ave. A volunteer would help to guide shoppers around the store, show them their options, and weigh their bags at the end of their shopping trip.

Proof of vaccination and a criminal background check is necessary, as is being comfortable near clients who may or may not choose to wear masks.

Please email Kate Sweeney at ksweeney@jfcspgh.org or register here. if you’re interested in this opportunity!

The JFCS Squirrel Hill Food Pantry is looking for opportunities to talk with people in our community about food insecurity. We’re hoping to reach out to people at synagogues, temples, churches and workplaces. If you could help us out by inviting us to speak at your place of worship or workplace, we would greatly appreciate it!

Please email Cristy Lagnese at clagnese@jfcspgh.org to learn more!
