The food bank provides staples such as cereals, juices, canned vegetables and fruits, canned meats, peanut butter, pasta, canned and dry milk, paper goods and other items deemed necessary for survival.
- The food bank distributes food by appointment on Mondays and Fridays ONLY between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM.
- Donations are accepted throughout the week.

When the Federation receives donations of clothing, household items and furniture, it is distributed to the needy free of charge.
In 2014 we helped 24,500 people receive bags of food that would last them at least a week and a half. Although we’ve seen improvements in the economy overall, we continue to see an increase in the number of families with children, including a larger number of grandparents that are now for caring for their grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren. Our organization also assists people with clothing, furniture, household goods, and medical equipment. Click here to see our 2014 statistics.
During the 2014 Thanksgiving season, we worked hard to provide at least 300 local families with the items necessary to celebrate with a traditional Thanksgiving meal. To continue providing to our local community through the Jerry Doliner Food Bank, we need the help of local businesses, organizations, and individuals throughout the year.
Your donations are tax-deductible as The Jerry Doliner Food Bank falls under the auspices of the Jewish Federation of Volusia & Flagler Counties, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
