In March, we will collect food for the Jewish Community Pantry located at 2900 W Center St. The Jewish Community Pantry, an effort co-sponsored by the JCC and the Women’s Philanthropy of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation, provides emergency food to individuals and families in crisis throughout the greater Milwaukee community. Connecting clients to community resources, while increasing our community’s awareness of hunger’s impact and working to alleviate its impact, the Pantry is our Jewish communal response to hunger in Milwaukee.

The Jewish Community Pantry reflects their commitment to the values of Tzedakah (justice) and Tikkun Olam (repair the world) and to serving community members in need of Kavod (respect).

All types of food are welcome, especially cans of tuna and cooking oils. The pantry is trying to stay away from processed foods and desserts to promote a healthier diet for the neighborhood clients.

More information about this pantry can be seen here. Thank you! Ellen Newbauer and Melanie Weston, Co-chairs.
