JSSA is a nonsectarian, nonprofit health and social service provider. They serve people of all religious backgrounds, races and ethnicities, helping the youngest child to the most fragile senior, from individuals to entire families. Annually, JSSA serves and supports more than 31,000 individuals and families throughout the Greater Washington metropolitan area.

Federation’s Jewish Food Experience (JFE) brings people together through the universal language of Jewish food. JFE hopes to inspire the community to embrace Jewish culture, community and history with intriguing food stories by local chefs, innovative events around town and traditional recipes with a twist.

Nourish Now strives to meet this goal by collecting donations of surplus fresh food from our dedicated Food Donor Partners throughout the Washington D.C. Metro region. Food is then redistributed directly to over 600 families in need each month and to over 90 local nonprofit organizations that offer food assistance.
