For many clients of the JFS Community Food Pantry, finding the resources for a birthday party is the last thing on their list when they are already dealing with food insufficiency. The Birthday in a Bag program was created to provide food pantry clients with everything needed to make a birthday celebration. Individual volunteers or community groups can join together to participate in this project by purchasing the following: a festive bag, cake mix, frosting, decorative plates and napkins, forks, a birthday decoration and candles. The Birthday in a Bag truly makes a difference in the life of someone who might not otherwise have these simple things to celebrate their birthday.
