Founded in 2000, JRA delivers food assistance and critical services to approximately 6,500 diverse individuals across Greater Philadelphia by relieving hunger, improving lives, and strengthening our community. JRA works to alleviate the everyday burdens of poverty for 3,800 food insecure households through our Monthly Food Distribution. Prior to the pandemic JRA attracted between 800 and 1,200 volunteers a month from all walks of life to come together to deliver food and other critical supplies. Over the years, JRA has established additional programs to meet community members at their point of need. Our array of supportive services, which include the Family Friendly Food Initiative, Everyday Essentials program, Crisis Fund, and Friendly Phone Calls, alleviate some of the stressors felt by the families we serve.
