The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Food Pantry assists individuals and families facing hunger and food insecurity. For some, the pantry helps weather an emergency; for others, it provides supplemental food to make ends meet without sacrificing their family’s health and well-being.
The pantry provides a nutritionally balanced supply of shelf-stable food that is expected to last five to seven days.
The pantry is located at 3201 South Tamarac Drive, Denver 80231. From I-25, take the Hampden exit and go east to Tamarac Drive. Turn left (north) on Tamarac Drive. We are located on the corner of Tamarac Drive and Eastman, just north of Benihana Restaurant.
First-time clients must call 720.248.4716 to set up an appointment. In order to utilize the pantry, applicants are asked to provide
documentation of income indicating that they earn less than 185% of the federal poverty level.
Pantry clients are asked to provide:
Community Passover Program
Supported through the Sally Steele Metzger Passover Fund, JFS provides food needed for a complete Passover Seder to families in need in our community. Each Passover basket includes a kosher chicken and a full complement of kosher-for-Passover food items. The Community Passover Program is designed to help those families who would normally prepare a Seder for themselves, but currently don’t have the resources. From donated food, to financial contributions, to volunteers, community participation is essential for the success of this project.
The JFS Thanksgiving program, supported through the Dorinda Levy Thanksgiving Fund, provides eligible low-income families with all the ingredients for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Clients of the agency register for the program and receive a large box of Thanksgiving food including a turkey, potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, stuffing, gravy, pumpkin pie supplies, milk, and eggs. Volunteers pack the boxes of bounty and distribute to clients on the day before Thanksgiving each year.
Bright Holidays Gifts
Eligible families, seniors, and individuals are “adopted” by community volunteers and donors (schools, religious organizations, corporations, and individuals) who supply personal and individualized gifts for Hanukkah or Christmas from client wish lists. Donors can also purchase toys, gift cards, and more to support this program. Learn more!
Donations of nonperishable food items are needed for families and individuals facing hunger. Your continued support will help keep our shelves stocked with food for those in need. View our Top 10 Needed Items List.
