As part of the services offered by The Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry, the staff and volunteers interview all new clients and existing clients at least once each quarter and connect them with other needed resources. Volunteers are essential to the success of the program and help in a variety of ways. Other volunteer tasks include packing, sorting, stocking, cooking and assembling TV dinners for home delivery. They also create decorative baskets filled with food items for temple and synagogue bimahs as a fund raising activity for the pantry.
When clients come into the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry, they receive not only food, but also a helping hand and hope for a better life. Through the support of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis and the EFS Program, the pantry has been able to reach out and assist the growing number of people in need in the community.
