Supporting Families & Seniors. Alleviating Hunger. Improving Mental Health.


This year marks JFS’ 150th anniversary; a milestone that recognizes our proud history and looks ahead at our role in the community for generations to come. We invite you to join us for this celebration!

Please mark your calendar for an unforgettable evening on Sunday, November 21 with JFS! Our Annual Gala on Sunday, November 21 will be a HYBRID event! We invite you to join us in-person at the Ritz-Carlton or virtually from the comfort of your own, or a friend’s home. Guests who prefer to join us virtually will receive an exclusive link to participate in the virtual celebration. The gala will include a reception followed by dinner, special entertainment, and a captivating program that will highlight JFS’ history of helping individuals and families by providing essential resources such as food, mental health services, and eldercare, and honor those – like yourself – who help bring JFS’ mission to life.

As part of this festive evening, we will pay tribute to the continued vision of the Harvey Kornblum Foundation and Trustees Gay Kornblum, Kathy Kornblum, Laura K. Silver and Michael Silver. Their generosity throughout the last twenty years has allowed JFS to meet the St. Louis community’s need for food assistance and helped position our organization to provide critical support and nourishment as we faced COVID-19 together.

We hope you will join us in making our 150th anniversary a special time to reflect, rejoice, and reunite.
