Student volunteers at the kosher food bank.

The students of Aventura-Turnberry Jewish Center in Aventura volunteered to stock the shelves of the Kosher Food Bank on Sunday, May 19. Co-chairs for this project were Heather Romeu and Deborah Thaler, parents of ATC children.

This was ATJC’s second visit to the food bank this year. The first took place before Passover when the students collected and gave kosher-for-Passover items to the facility.

The Jewish Community Services Kosher Food Bank, located at 2056 NE 155th Street in North Miami Beach, is the only food bank facility in South Florida that accommodates those who observe Jewish dietary laws. The JCS Kosher Food Bank supplies food items and other daily necessities.

Clients “shop” during specially arranged confidential appointments that help ensure privacy and maintain dignity. Everyone who visits the food bank meets with a JCS professional who performs a comprehensive evaluation to assess overall needs, which might include employment counseling or mental health services.

For more information call JCS at 305-576-6550.
