Food Closet

Food & Gift Card Donations

Food Closet: Food & Gift Donations | Collat Jewish Family Services of Birmingham

Donate non-perishable food items or grocery store gift cards to help keep the CJFS Food Closet stocked with the foods individuals and families need on a daily basis to make ends meet. No meat or shellfish products, please. 

-Basics are Best, and think of making a meal - peanut butter, crackers, and jelly; tuna/salmon, mayo, and crackers; cereal & shelf-stable milk or milk alternatives; pancake mix and canned fruits; pasta & tomato sauce; canned beans and rice.

-Our elderly and disabled clients have special needs - consider purchasing some products with reduced-sodium or no added sugar, or shelf-stable convenience "entrees" for our clients who cannot cook (vegetarian items, please).

-Expiration Dates- if you are making room in your pantry by sharing with CJFS, please check dates before making food gifts. If no date is printed, we cannot distribute the food. 

-Buy One, Get One FREE - think of CJFS if you have room in your cart for special offers of "free" non-perishables while doing your own shopping. 

Donations of non-perishable food can be left in the lobby at the Levite Jewish Community Center, 3960 Montclair Rd, 35213. Call 205-879=0411 for hours.

To inquire about donations, please call 205.879.3438.
