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

JFS’ Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry (HKJFP) provides you with at least 10 days of food per month,

including kosher options, and personal care items. At HKJFP, you can also connect with a nurse, utility assistance, and referrals to other community resources. We serve all who live in St. Louis County, inclusive of age, race, religion, ethnicity, ability, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

At the HKJFP, you shop for yourself and select the foods that support your family’s unique preferences, nutritional needs, and dietary requirements*. We offer fresh fruits and vegetables, along with protein-rich foods. Our welcoming staff and volunteers look forward to seeing you.

* In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adjusted our operations to meet local and regional health guidelines to keep you safe. We have temporarily shifted to a drive-through food distribution model that follows guidelines for physical distancing and streamlines food distribution. We will still provide you and others who live in your household with at least 10 days of food each month, but we currently select and pack the food for you. We look forward to returning to inviting you to shop for yourself as soon as it is safe for you to do so.
