The Food Closet is a 100% volunteer organization that is a certified pantry within the framework of the Community Food Bank of NJ, and with that, we are governed by federal and state requirements for all our clients. If clients qualify according to the regulations, they receive food. And that is our mission – to provide food to our neighbors who need it.

OUR VOLUNTEERS SAID

The feeling that the work I do helps others in my community is so rewarding. I think about our shut-in clients as I pack their bags, and it gives me a sense of joy to know that what I am doing is directly helping them — in a few days, they will be opening their bags and putting the items that I’ve selected and packed for them onto their kitchen shelves.

TRACEY, VOLUNTEER

I wonder if everybody did just a little bit to help each other, and leave things just a little bit better than they found them, how much better the world would be? Throughout history, the greatest achievements happened when people worked together. I’d like us all to work together, each of us doing our little part and together, achieve greatness.

SCOTT, VOLUNTEER

A lot of steps take place prior to the final distribution. When Janet and I get to the Food Closet, other volunteers have already prepped and labeled the bags so they’re ready to be filled. We mask up, glove up, and pre-pack nonperishable items for seniors and shut ins. On distribution day, fresh fruits and vegetables get added in and the orders are delivered.
