ESSEN-tials, kosher food program

ESSEN-tials is a Kosher Food Initiative sponsored by Jewish Family Service and Rachel's Table

People who observe kashrut - the Jewish dietary laws - cannot depend on food pantries to meet their needs. As a result, hunger in kosher Jewish households has become a serious problem. In collaboration with Jewish Family Service, Rachel’s Table offers ESSEN-tials, a kosher food distribution program periodically throughout the year.  

For questions, referrals or if you would like to receive kosher food, please contact Cathy Chandler, email c.chandler@jfswm.org or call 413.455.1936 x104.
