Applications are taken, and food is provided to anyone from Morris County in need. The Pantry gets referrals from many places including: churches and temples, hospitals, and schools as well as local agencies such as the New Jersey Battered Women's Shelter, Morris County Department of Human Services and the Interfaith Council for Homeless Families.

Our services to the community include; nutrition education, referrals to other community agencies, expanded hours for working families, Free Farmers Market (for clients only), Thanksgiving Program (turkeys and trimmings provided to all clients), backpack and school supply distribution, Kitchen To Table (donation based, team building experience) and education and civic engagement.

Information, Education, Volunteer Opportunities

Last, but not least, we feel it is important to provide information and education about the needs in our community as well as volunteer opportunities where people can feel they have actually made a difference. With this in mind we offer tours, orientation programs to youth and adult groups, make presentations at local churches and clubs, and provide volunteer projects for all ages.
