Drop donations off on Sundays in the Narthex or in Nieman Annex, our new Food for Friends area. 

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!
