KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jewish Family Services has seen an “exponential increase” in meals to hundreds of families since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

On Sunday, JFS continued its work at the Jewish Community Campus, 5801 West 115th Street, with a drive-thru food pantry event sponsored by the Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City.

Between its two food pantry locations, JFS is serving 900 families on a monthly basis.

Those interested in receiving food from the pantry must register in advance.
