  • Description: Today, the JFS Pantry and its food programs serve people near or below poverty line, or who are nutritionally at risk. Our food pantry, located at 1440 Whalley Ave., offers non-perishables to needy families as a once monthly supplement to food stamps. The Food Pantry is open each Tuesday from 9-12 and two Fridays per month. Emergency food assistance can be obtained after 10:30 a.m. on the days we are open. A current photo ID/license, proof of dependents and income are required during the emergency food application process. For emergency food, please call 203-397-0796. More than 5,000 pounds of nonperishable food are distributed through JFS each month! The food distributed is purchased from the Connecticut Food Bank, in addition to food received from donations from individuals and from food drives by synagogues, schools, organizations and local businesses.The pantry is funded in part by a grant from the United Way of Greater New Haven.
