Ohev Sholom Feeds The Hungry

Unfortunately food insecurity is an ongoing issue. Congregation Ohev Sholom has teamed up with Jewish Family Services and the Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City in response to the ever-growing need for food assistance in Kansas City.

Our congregation has been asked to collect donations of food and paper/toiletry items during the month of February. Specific items needed include:

  • boxed instant/plain oatmeal
  • hand sanitizers

These items will be stocked in the JFS Food pantry and will provide food for more than 200 households in our community.

Please drop off your food donations in the collection barrels in our building through the month of February. If you have any questions please contact the Ohev Sholom office.

If you would like information regarding the JFS Food Pantry, or would like to become a JFS Food Pantry recipient, volunteer, or donor, please contact Jo Hickey, Director, Food Pantry/Community Projects, Jewish Family Services, 913-327-8257 or jhickey@jfskc.org.
