Food Pantry Services

Shorefront Jewish Community Council is on the forefront of the fight against hunger. SJCC has one of the largest kosher food pantries in South Brooklyn for over 10 years. Since 2016 our pantry grew and we opened the Leader Family Food Pantry at Shorefront JCC. Our new 1,000sq foot facility allows us to work together with our partners to provide a client choice pantry where food recipients can order their food from home or from iPads at the pantry site. Our pantry is 100% Kosher and works to help the entire community fight food insecurity. For more information on our pantry services please reach out to Leah Mikhli at extension 7506.

Mrs. M has dementia and she is constantly hungry. She specifically wants fruit often. Her food stamps just do not cover the amount of food she needs every month especially since she likes fresh produce. I spend time searching for sales on fruit for her. Without the food pantry at SJCC she would not be able to be sustained on the amount of money she has each month for food.
