JSS Food Drive 2022

Thank you for joining this effort to help provide Vegetarian Meals for our friends at different homeless shelters. Our intention is to connect people and food. All the food we provide is Vegetarian - free of meat, fish, eggs, poultry and their by products. In our attempts we also try our best to provide Jain foods avoiding onion, potato, garlic, dairy, dairy products and nuts (being a common allergen).

It is our humble effort to build the momentum to end hunger in Washington State, ensuring resources are effectively stewarded to do the best for most people. You can find the list of Shelters we frequently cater to at the bottom of this page. We understand that these shelters may not always be at a convinient distance from your home/work. So in order to assist with the logistics we make every effort to have a family/volunteer host the drive. We have host volunteers from all over the eastside. Bothell, Sammamish, Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland, Issaquah to name a few. Incase you are interested to be a host, You can sign up at the link at the end of this page.
