Our Mission:
To Lead the Jewish Community in the Fight Against Hunger

  • Rabbi and Rebbetzin Kazen founded the Kosher Food Pantry 40 years ago as a support network assisting Russian immigrants with jobs, food and clothing. Today, its mission has greatly expanded to serve a more diverse population.

  • The Kosher Food Pantry is a partner agency of the Cleveland Food Bank which provides dry goods and produce. Donations pay for other Kosher staples and the cost of transporting, storing and distributing the food.

  • We serve needy Jewish families in Cleveland’s eastern suburbs, as well as those referred by Cleveland’s social service agencies without discrimination.

  • The Kosher Food Pantry has 100 rotating volunteers from all segments of the community, serving over 4,000 clients monthly. In December 2015 food was distributed to 1,205 seniors, 1,315 adults and 1,508 children.

  • In 2015, we transported, packed and delivered over 600,000 pounds of nutritious fruits, vegetables and other staples to over 30,000 in our community.
