Update from the most recent edition of the
Making Connections newsletter
September 26, 2023
This month marks 30 years since the Jewish community opened Family Table, and I can’t help but marvel at how much about our world has changed since then.
As New England’s largest kosher food pantry, Family Table today provides fresh, nutritious food and a caring connection to more than 1,600 people annually. And, as a foundational program of JF&CS, Family Table provides an entry point to a wide array of services.
Family Table is not “just” a food pantry. When someone becomes a Family Table client, they become an enrolled member of the JF&CS family. They may be dealing with a whole constellation of challenges: from navigating the complexities of aging or parenthood, to coping with trauma, to finding a reliable housing situation and making ends meet. And JF&CS is here to help with all of it.
The key to our work is addressing the many complex realities of life under one roof. Please read on for stories of how we do it—grounded in Jewish values of caring and social justice—while constantly evolving to meet changing community needs.
