Community Kitchens

We host Community Kitchens (CKs) twice a month at the JFS Kitchen. Our CKs promote food security, increase access to nutritious food, cultivate food preparation skills, provide opportunities to connect with others and share food ideas, and unite community to celebrate Jewish holidays and cultures through food. All food prepared in our CKs is BCK-certified Kosher and Parve (primarily plant-based, with eggs and fish). When possible, we showcase local food ingredients and use food items that are included in the standard order of our Grocery Program.

Meal Planning Guide

The JFS Meal Planning Guide was created by UBC Dietetics interns in 2023 to help community members participating in the JFS Grocery Program to plan their shopping and cooking in ways that are cost-effective and nutritious. The guide includes 5 nutritious recipes with helpful nutrition tips, focused on ingredients included in our grocery orders. It can easily be used to create a shopping list for a low-cost meal plan.
