Help fill our pantry. The need continues to grow. 

“I am thankful to the JFS Food Bank because I get fresh, healthy, good-quality food that lasts for over a week.
Every time I walk into the food bank, I see appreciation and respect.” – Charlie

Our annual food drive is back! This event is vital in filling up the JFS food bank with healthy pantry items to support those in need.

This year our numbers continue to increase. We are now serving over 450 people EVERY week through the food bank, with a total of 950 clients.  We currently need at least 4,500 pounds of food a week to ensure all those who turn to us remain food secure in the year ahead.

Nourishing proteins like nut butters, canned fish, lentils, kasha and beans are especially needed.

Here’s how to participate:

1. Fill your bags with nourishing pantry items, especially proteins like nut butters, canned fish and beans<

2. Drop off your bag at JFS' The Kitchen (54 East 3rd Ave, Vancouver) on September 23 or 24
