loaves & fishes


Jenkintown Food Cupboard offers assistance to residents of Montgomery County who’s household income is less than 150% of the federal poverty level.  You are welcome to visit us weekly on Thursdays from noon-2 p.m. Use our registration forms or come in and fill them out in person.  We offer the following support:


Fresh and non-perishable food

The amount depends on the number of members in your household.  You will receive a card with a number of units.  You then use those units to select the food YOU like, just like a grocery store.  We often have representatives from a local animal hospital with food for your four-legged family members too.



We have our own boutique for men, women and children! Patrons receive clothing credits each week to go shopping in the clothing room.  You may use the credits each week, or save them up for items requiring larger amounts of credit, such as outerwear.


Nutrition advice

Representatives from Health Promotion Council visit frequently to answer your questions and cook up delicious (and HEALTHY) recipes you can sample.
