More than 200 people recently attended Jewish Family Services (JFS) Fifth Annual Embracing Possibility “Helping our Hungry Community” gathering at the home of Attorney General George Jepsen and his wife Diana. The event celebrated the expansion of the the Anja Rosenberg Kosher Food Pantry at Jewish Family Services, which distributes more than 90,000 pounds of food, toiletries and cleaning supplies each year to local residents in need.
JFS has raised over $150,000 toward its Annual Friends Campaign, which benefits counseling, education and community programs like the Anja Rosenberg Kosher Food Pantry.
“We’ve seen a dramatic increase this past year and this expansion is a direct response to our community needs. This expansion will make an incredible impact on a family and child in need. No child should be hungry and wondering where their next meal will come from,” said JFS development co-chair Pia Rosenberg Toro, who co-chaired the event together with her husband, Mickey Toro, and Judy and David Rosenthal, were thankful for the exceptional response.
The event was hosted by FOX61’s Jenn Bernstein and Jim Altman.
