JEWISH RELIEF AGENCY serves over 6,000 diverse low-income individuals across Greater Philadelphia by relieving hunger, improving lives, and strengthening our community.
JRA's work is fueled by our volunteers who serve those in need in a variety of ways, including packing and delivering a boxes of food to members of our community. All of our volunteers, who come from many backgrounds, ages, and abilities, are united by a commitment to helping those in need and strengthening our shared community. Through community service, JRA nourishes body and soul.
Once a month, JRA volunteers of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities meet at our Northeast Philly warehouse to pack and then deliver boxes of nutritious kosher food to over 6,000 low-income individuals and families. During this time, volunteers will pack 3,200 boxes of food, including fresh produce, for families in need. In addition to the standard food box, volunteers also pack family friendly food bags and toiletries for some of our recipients.
