Food Pantry

The Jewish Federation of Lee and Charlotte Counties food pantry is small but mighty. Jewish Family Services, along with The United Way, The Harry Chapin Food Bank, The Midwest Food Bank and donations from our generous community, is a resource offering food to people in need.

Marcia Can Help

A fund of the Jewish Federation and Jewish Family Services, Marcia Can Help provides for emergency nutritional needs through our Food Pantry, gift card distribution, and crisis grants to prevent utility cut-offs, evictions, loss of transportation and other essential services without which none of us can live.

Lunch Bunch

Jewish Family Services hosts a free monthly senior program which has grown in popularity since it began in 2016. The senior lunch program fills a need for seniors who might be isolated, less inclined to be social and who want to engage with others in the community and with their peers. Friendships are born and personal connections are made.


Honoring a special person through a tribute gift to the Jewish Family Services of Lee & Charlotte Counties is a wonderful way to recognize a simcha (happy occasion) or remember a loved one.
