JFS Food Pantry Reopening December 2, 2021

We are pleased to announce that the new JFS Food Pantry will be opening on Thursday, December 2, 2021

Despite construction delays and supply-chain shortages, we are nearing the finish line! The following outlines detailed information including dates, how to sign-up for upcoming volunteer training and shifts, how to get food during our scheduled closure, and how to make an appointment in the new Food Pantry. 

  • Thursday, October 28 is the last weekly drive-thru food distribution. We will be distributing double food so that it can stretch into the following week of November. 
  • The drive-thru food distribution will be closed for the remainder of November to allow time for set-up, training, and more with the exception of a special Thanksgiving Drive-Thru Food Distribution on Monday, November 22 from 9:00am-12:00pm. 
  • We will open our new Food Pantry on Thursday, December 2, returning to our monthly appointment-based client-choice model. Clients may begin scheduling appointments online at www.jfsdallas.org/FP
