This year, we have a lot to walk for.
It's that time of year again! Our annual Fall fundraiser is upon us!

With costs-of-living on the rise, we know that the need for our programs and offerings is increasingly urgent. By taking part in the Walk for nourish.NJ fundraiser, you are helping to increase accessibility to the resources our guests can use to thrive, even during these challenging times. Walk from anywhere, anytime, between October 8th-23rd, and join us to fight the impact inflation is making on homelessness, hunger and poverty in Morris County.

Support Food for Friends

Donations support local food pantries

Grace Church is responding to the growing numbers of individuals, families, and children in New Jersey who are food insecure due to the pandemic. We have increased the number of organizations that we partner with and are striving to increase the amount and quality of our donations to them while coping with the unique logistical challenges and safety concerns we currently face.

If you would like to shop for donations

Steer clear of these items: flavored rices/noodles, bread crumbs, lasagne/stuffed shell pasta, stuffing, pumpkin, pickles cake mixes/frosting, flour, shortening, huge bottles of anything.  

 

Always welcome: Simple, unprocessed foods are best!  See lists below for specific outreach needs. Thank you for your generosity!
