Tap into Bloomfield's greatest commodity. ITS PEOPLE.

NTNN works with The Human Needs Food Pantry in Montclair, NJ to provide food to low income families and older adults. For many, this is their only source of food. More than 150 homebound and/or disabled individuals/families in need have food delivered each week. Food Delivery Volunteers pick up bags of fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, and groceries from the Human Needs Food Pantry once a week and deliver them to a set route of about 5 residents who are unable to go the pantry on their own due to age, disability, or lack of transportation. We aim to make the deliveries on the route within close range of each other. The route is the same each week and takes about 1 hour to complete. This volunteer opportunity makes a huge impact. If you can't commit to volunteering weekly, you can apply to be a Food Delivery Sub and volunteer on an as needed basis!

**Currently looking for volunteers who are available during morning hours to deliver. Pick up can be from 10:30AM- 12PM. The pantry is open Tuesdays and Thursdays.
