Operation Afikomen

Help us Stock our Food Pantry

 

Operation Afikomen, Gulf Coast JFCS’ semi-annual food drive, begins March 1st and continues through April 30th.  All the area synagogues, the JCC Suncoast, and the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco will be promoting the food drive to their members and helping to collect nonperishable food. This year GCJFCS is participating in the One Million Dollar Feinstein Challenge.  The more food the community donates, the more dollars GCJFCS will receive from the Feinstein Foundation to purchase additional food.

In its 16th consecutive year, the Feinstein Challenge will divide $1 million among nonprofit hunger-fighting agencies nationwide to help them collect food and raise funds this March and April. Donating during this challenge makes you a partner in the most successful ongoing effort ever to fight hunger.

Drop off locations are listed below. For more information contact Gail Osnos, Family Support Services Coordinator, at 727-479-1806 or gosnos@gcjfcs.org.
