West Palm Beach Pantry

The Food Pantry location where Temple Israel participates is at Urban League’s Community Services Center, 2107 North Tamarind Avenue, West Palm Beach, which is in the heart of a neighborhood considered a “food desert” – void of any decent grocery stores.  We are one of five founding-supporting congregations of this Pantry and we provide volunteers twice each month.

Due to Covid restrictions, currently two volunteers are needed to help assemble and distribute bags of food and one computer-trained person is needed for registering clients.

In addition to food, some personal hygiene products are available.

Donations that always are appreciated:

  • Peanut butter
  • Rice
  • Beans (dried or canned)
  • Canned protein (meats, chicken, tuna, salmon, chili, etc.)
  • Tomato sauce
  • Pasta (dry or canned)
  • Canned fruits & vegetables
  • Cereal
  • Baby Food & Formula
  • Condiments such as mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard
  • Bar or liquid bath soap, toothbrushes/toothpaste/floss, toilet paper, diapers (infant & adult)
