Lifelines Emergency Assistance


The Lifelines program provides individuals and families in distress with access to our food pantry, as well as potentially providing gift cards for basic needs. Please email or call 949.435.3460 for an appointment to complete a food pantry application so we can evaluate how we might help.


Lifelines staff may also be able to refer you to other Orange County resources that meet the needs of local residents.


Offer a Lifeline

You can offer a lifeline by making a donation directed to Lifelines Emergency Assistance.

Gift card donations will also be gladly accepted to provide assistance for basic needs. Cards for groceries, gas, and household items from stores such as Target and Walmart are most useful.

Gift cards can be dropped off or mailed to:
Jewish Federation & Family Services
