Volunteering FAQ

I’ve Been Court Appointed to Volunteer. Can You Use Me?

Court appointed volunteers are welcome to serve in our food pantry but must submit a completed application before placement occurs. Applications must be received at least two weeks prior to projected start date. Contact Chelsey Banaskavich, Volunteer Coordinator, at (314) 812-9386 or cbanaskavich@jfcs-stl.org.

What about my kids? Can they volunteer too?

Sure. Children ages 10 through 17 may volunteer as sorters or stockers at the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry. They may volunteer with you, with another adult or with a school or community group. Contact Judy Berkowitz, HKJFP Director, at (314) 513-1673 or at jberkowitz@jfcs-stl.org for more information; consent forms; and available times.
