TJFS adds food Collection box at Glazer JCC

The new food bank collection bin at the Bryan Glazer Family JCC The new food bank collection bin at the Bryan Glazer Family JCC Tampa Jewish Family Services’ Community Food Bank has a new collection location in the front lobby of the Bryan Glazer Family JCC in west Tampa. This is in addition to the collection box located outside the offices of TJFS at the JCC on the Cohn Campus in northwest Tampa.

Both wooden bins were constructed by TJFS board member Lloyd Stern.

Michael Barnett, Tampa Jewish Family Services CEO, noted the convenience of the new food bin at the Glazer JCC. “You can drop off non-perishables on your way in to work out or when attending an event,” said Barnett.

Community members are encouraged to donate non-perishable goods including canned tuna fish, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables and cereal.

“There is a critical need for donated items in the Tampa Bay area. We help feed thousands of families every year and could not do it without these generous donations,” said Barnett.

Donations can be dropped off in the TJFS offices, located in the Glazer JCC, 522 S. Howard Ave., and the Cohn campus, 13009 Community Campus Drive.

TJFS provides programs and services for those in the Tampa Bay community who are in need of food, counseling and financial assistance. For more information on the Community Food Bank and Tampa Jewish Family Services, visit
