JBox provides a monthly kosher meal delivered to those in need in the East Valley.
2022 Dates: Wednesday, May 18
The meals are prepared by Chef Melinda McNeil in the East Valley JCC’s kitchen, which is under the kosher supervision of Rabbi Michael Beyo. The meals are delivered by volunteers and staff members and will be a contactless delivery in an effort to keep both recipients and drivers safe due to health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
JBox is the new name for Ladles of Love, the EVJCC’s kosher meal delivery program, which began in 2016.
All recipients will be in the East Valley. If you are interested in delivering meals, please email Leisah. All volunteers are required to sign a waiver (download here) and bring it on the delivery date. (Questions? Submit here.)
As the demand for meals increases within our Jewish community, donations to JBox are always appreciated.
Donations can include direct donations or gift cards to grocery stores where kosher foods and fresh fruits and vegetables are offered.
Donations of unused kitchen supplies and utensils are also needed to sustain operations. Gift cards to stores that also sell kitchen or restaurant supplies are also appreciated, because JBox can always use items like another bowl, cutting board, knife, foil or packaging.
Acceptable kitchen supply donations include:
*Because the kitchen is kosher, all items need to be new and left in their original packaging.
