In an effort to connect volunteers who can bring groceries and supplies to those in high-risk demographics, Jewish Family Services (JFS) has implemented a Groceries-to-Go program. Groceries-to-Go aims to connect volunteer shoppers with individuals who can afford their groceries but are currently unable to get to the store themselves. Our initial focus is on the those who do not have family or other supports to assist them and are elderly, immunocompromised, or a person with disabilities.
How does the Groceries-to-Go program work?
Call our staff at (585) 506-3063 with your itemized grocery list. Our staff will match you with a community volunteer who can shop for your groceries and leave them at your door.
We will schedule your grocery shopping in one to two days of receiving your order – depending on volunteer availability. We recommend placing your order at least three business days before you would like to receive it.
Your volunteer shopper will inform you of the total cost of your grocery shop. JFS will then send you an invoice along with the receipt. You can pay the invoice by credit card or personal check.
Shopping is limited to once per week.
Monday – Thursday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm and Friday from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. All orders and shopping must occur during JFS business hours.
