  • Description

    Who Do We Serve?

    The Pantry, which began in 1994 by supporting five families, is currently distributing more than 4 tons of food to 250 families each week. The Pantry's clients are primarily senior citizens living on fixed incomes and low-income working families.

    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.

    Food Bank and Clearing House

    We find ourselves serving as a food bank and clearing house for many other groups. There is no food bank in Morris County, yet many want to donate locally. As we get calls regarding available food or other items, we pair groups we know are looking with donors, or hold items until we find where the need is.

    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.
