Jimbo’s Supports Jewish Family Services Hand Up Food Pantry

| May 11, 2020 | 0 Comments

On Tuesday, May 5, 2020 Jimbo’s made a donation to Jewish Family Services Hand Up Food Pantry in the amount of  $8,542.80.

Following the passing of Proposition 67 in 2016, Jimbo’s is required by California State law to impose a charge of 10 cents on each paper bag they provide to customers. As a result of COVID-19, reusable bags are prohibited for the safety of staff members and customers. Effective April 25, the fee for bags has been lifted for the next 60-days. Since, the majority of Jimbo’s customers use reusable bags, the funds collected during April 6-24 are much higher than usual for that time period.

Jimbo’s donated all 10 cent paper bag fees collected from April 6 through 24 to the Jewish Family Services Hand Up Food Pantry. They will be able to use these much needed funds to support the many San Diegans who rely on their food pantry every week, especially during this time.

Hand Up Food Pantry locations include their onsite Corner Market and distribution sites at Camp Pendleton, Murphy Canyon, Chabad Downtown, and the JFS College Avenue Center.
