Kosher Food Boxes

Since 2009, Jewish Family Services has been providing supplemental kosher food to Jewish families and individuals who are struggling financially on a monthly basis.

Kosher food boxes are given on a confidential basis, and contain items that have been approved by a rabbi and a dietician.  The boxes can feed an individual or couple for one week, or a family of four for five days.

Currently JFS is the only food bank in Nashville that supplies solely certified kosher selections, others may provide a few.  Approximately 20 families per month currently participate in the Kosher Food Box program.

To apply for the Kosher Food Box Program please contact Toni Jacobsen at (615) 354-1672 or email:

 “I look forward to getting the monthly food box which enables me to buy fresh  bread, milk and cheese.”
