The Holiday Season is a joyous time of the year. We celebrate with our families and friends sharing our love, providing hope, singing songs and giving gifts. The Holidays means food, feasts, and delicious desserts. The Holidays are also full of stress when we are not able to afford to buy food for the Christmas Dinner. Parents/Caregivers also worry about not having money to buy presents for our children and others who are very special to us.

The JPC Food Pantry will assist low-income families, children, elderly and individuals create a wonderful and a memorable loving Christmas with the JPC Free Food Give-A-Way with Christmas Presents.
