Jewish Family Services Receives $10,000 Grant from BJ's Charitable Foundation


JFS Receives $10,000 Grant from BJís Charitable Foundation

to Help Fight Hunger in South Palm Beach County


Grant will support the JFS Meals on Wheels program and the Jacobson Family Food Pantry, which help address the crisis of food insecurity in our community.


Boca Raton, FL  (July 29, 2015) Ė Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services (JFS) is grateful to have received a generous $10,000 grant from BJís Charitable Foundation. The grant will support the JFS Meals on Wheels program and the Jacobson Family Food Pantry, which help address the crisis of food insecurity in our community through providing nutritious food to struggling seniors, families and children in Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Highland Beach.


For over 35 years JFS has served community members who are experiencing financial setbacks, homebound elderly living on meager incomes, and poverty stricken families with hungry children. JFS provides 2 bags of nutritious food every other week, including fresh produce and bread, delivered right to their doors. The Jacobson Family Food Pantry allows recipients to choose their items including fresh milk and chicken. 80% of our clients are seniors and JFS has identified that, in some cases, providing bags of food is not enough. Many do not have the ability to prepare food due to functional limitations or health problems. In response to this, in 2013, JFS implemented the JFS Meals on Wheels Program to deliver prepared meals to homebound, frail and disabled seniors. 


Danielle Hartman, JFS, President and CEO stated, ďa unique and critical component of our food programs is that all clients are provided with case management to assess needs beyond food and link them to other JFS programs such as financial assistance, counseling, career and employment services, and referrals to other community services. We aim to provide solutions that help clients move out of poverty and into financial security.  We are thankful to BJís Charitable Foundation for their generosity in helping us achieve our mission of providing help, hope and humanity for our neighbors in need.Ē


ďThe BJís Charitable Foundation is dedicated to supporting nonprofits like the Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services that focus on alleviating the burden of hunger to local individuals and families in our communities,Ē said Kyle Heine, general manager of the BJís Wholesale Club in Boynton Beach.
