Food Pantry May Wish List

May is a month with lots of celebrations – from Mother’s Day to preparing to honor upcoming graduates of all ages.  Everyone deserves a treat and you can help Pantry visitors celebrate their loved ones with a donation of boxed cake mixes, frosting and cookie mixes.

Also, during May our non-food collection item will be deodorant.  Items such as toiletries are not covered under SNAP and deodorant is a frequently requested item.  Both women and men’s deodorant is needed. Donations can be dropped off at the JFS Food Pantry, 1440 Whalley Avenue, New Haven on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. or you can call (203) 397-0796 to schedule an alternative time. Questions can be directed to
