Students from 5 States Volunteer at Our Food Pantry

More than 80 teens with NFTY-OV (North American Federation of Temple Youth - Ohio Valley Region) visited Jewish Family Service Barbash Family Vital Support Center to learn about our agency and our Heldman Family Food Pantry.


The middle- and high-school age students are from Reform congregations in parts of Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia. They were on the Cincinnati Clifton campus of Hebrew Union College (where our Vital Support Center is located) the second weekend of January for Study Kallah.

They stocked shelves, made blankets for our clients, and participated in a role playing activity on food insecurity by planning a week of meals for a family of 3 based on food received in the our food pantry.


Student groups are encouraged to visit and volunteer at Jewish Family Service Barbash Family Vital Support Center. Please contact Sandee Golden  at 513-766-3352.
