One in six Americans is affected by “food insecurity” – the lack of consistent, dependable access to food due to limited money or resources. Rockland Jewish Family Service works to alleviate hunger in our community through the Rhoda Bloom Kosher Food Pantry, which provides kosher food to anyone in need in Rockland.
RJFS is part of Rockland Community Against Hunger (RCAH) which is a collaboration to provide information, raise awareness, mobilize support, & educate the community about healthy food & nutrition. For more information please visit http://www.rocklandhunger.org/
For more information about how to apply to the Food Pantry please contact Kathryn Samalin, 845-354-2121 ext.140 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome all to volunteer at our monthly distributions. We need volunteers from 8:30AM-12Noon. If you want to bring a group please contact Kathryn prior to the distribution.
