Jai Jinendra!

JCNC Food Drive

JCNC Youth Club urges you to participate in Jain food drive. We are having the food drive in collaboration with Second Harvest Food Bank (www.shfb.org) The food collection is to help to end the local hunger.

Food drive will be from ​November 6th to December ​14​th 2015.

Please make sure the food you donate is Jain Food (no garlic, onions, carrots, potatoes, etc).


Examples of Jain canned food are:


Beans (Kidney, Garbanzo, Black beans etc.)

Vegetable Soups

Peanut butter

Low sugar cereals

100% fruit juices in single serving boxes

Canned vegetables and fruits (like peas, corn, pineapple, olives, peaches, green beans, etc.)



Please avoid bringing in glass jars and big bags of rice, sugar, flour, etc. Feel free to bring in and drop off the food in the containers from second harvest food bank placed across the shoe room during this time period.


We will also be collecting money to buy the food so you do not have to buy and carry the cans to the temple. We will go and buy the canned food to donate behalf of you.


We all sincerely do encourage you to participate in our food drive and help the community and the people in need.
