Erica Steen is the director of the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry (HKJFP) at Jewish Family Services (JFS). Erica knows the importance of food security and knows that the food HKJFP gives community members will give them the nourishment that she hopes will energize them to take control of other parts of their lives. Prior to her arrival at JFS in December 2019, Erica was the director of Give Kids A Smile. She has spent the majority of her career as a Jewish communal professional at the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, B’nai Brith Youth Organization, and JCCs in St. Louis, Dayton, Cincinnati, Washington DC and Miami. Erica has a degree in Human Development and Family Life from the University of Kansas, and has dedicated her career to empowering others and making a difference in our community. Erica’s favorite quote is “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito”. Erica can be reached at email@example.com or 314-513-1673.
