The Rina Shkolnik Kosher Food Pantry is a joint initiative of the Jewish Community Center of the Greater Five Towns and UJA-Federation of New York and is supported by the Five Towns Community Chest and the Inwood Charities Fund.
The pantry assists individuals and families by providing nutritious non-perishable food packages consisting of tuna fish, pasta, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, breakfast cereal and much more. We also provide toiletries such as shampoo, deodorant, tooth brushes and toothpaste and diapers.
There are many ways you can help. We accept kosher non-perishable food products, toiletries, cleaning products and paper goods. You may also make a monetary contribution. We are always seeking a team of dedicated volunteers to assist in sorting, organizing, packaging and delivering food to those in need who cannot come
into the pantry. We are also looking for volunteers to organize a food drive at their school, synagogue, club or place of employment.
Please contact the Rina Shkolnik Kosher Food Pantry at 516-295-5678 for ways to get involved.
This program is funded by the Safety Net Initiative of UJA-Federation.
Want to make someone smile? The JCC food pantry needs a few good men, women, children to help package and deliver food to our clients.
Food deliveries take place primarily in the Five Towns and surrounding areas, including the Far Rockaway and Bayswater communities.
Please take this opportunity to do a Mitzvah (good deed) and assist in the effort to aid our community. Our Food Pantry operates year round. If you have spare time, make it meaningful by volunteering. High school students eligible for community service hours -get a head start on next year’s hours- call today!
If you are interested in helping out, please contact the JCC.
