Pandemic Hunger Relief

Food Collections is at Grace Church every Saturday from 10am to noon. 
Stop by for a quick and easy drop-off of non-perishable food at here at Grace Church. At noon, the donations are immediately delivered to our partners.
Want to shop online?  Order from the Walmart Registry and your donation will be sent to the Hughes home for delivery. North Porch donations are delivered weekly so we are always collecting for them.

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.

We will be delivering food to the following recipients:
