3rd Graders Pack Bags for the JFS Eastside Food Bank - Jewish Day School

3rd Graders Pack Bags for the JFS Eastside Food Bank

Fall 2015: In 1993, a wonderful partnership began between JDS and Jewish Family Service. Starting as an after school program, students put together Food Bank bags and distributed them to the 125 participants served each month. The annual partnership continues and has now evolved as part of the 3rd grade curriculum. The food is brought over in the JFS agency van and the students' role is to pack bags of groceries which are then given out to the recipients. Food Bank staff and the JDS teachers assist the students with this regular monthly assignment. We love our partnership with JFS!
