The High Holy Days Food Drive helps to replenish the Project Manna Food Pantry, a program of the JCC Family Services Department (formerly Jewish Family Services of York). Donations of non-perishable, shelf-stable food and paper products support food-insecure families and individuals in the greater York community throughout the year.

Organizations, individuals and families are encouraged to place non-perishables in collection receptacles during operating hours at the York JCC lobby, Gan Tamar Early Childhood Education (ECE) entrance, or the Gan Rimon Campus in Jacobus, PA.

Monetary donations can be made here. (Under Campaign, please select High Holy Days Food Drive.)
