Jewish Community Pantry
The Jewish Community Pantry, an effort co-sponsored by the JCC and the Women’s Division of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation, seeks to provide emergency food to individuals and families in crisis throughout the greater Milwaukee community. With a focus on connecting clients to community resources, and increasing our community’s awareness of hunger’s impact while educating on how we can alleviate that impact, the pantry is our Jewish communal response to hunger in Milwaukee. The Jewish Community Pantry reflects our commitment to the values of Tzedakah (justice) and Tikkun Olam (repair the world) and to serving community members in need of Kavod (respect.)
Located at 2930 West Center Street, the Jewish Community Pantry is open each Thursday from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm, and the third Sunday of each month from 12:00 pm until 2:00 pm. Clients are served on a first come, first served basis. The pantry maintains a general food section, infant section, and a Kosher section. Identification is required for all visits.
The Jewish Community Pantry is supported by the Emergency Pantry Network of the Hunger Task Force. For more information regarding donations, financial support, and volunteering opportunities, please contact Dorene Paley at 414-967-8217.
