WHO WE ARE
MISSION | FAST FACTS | TEAM
We believe in the power of a caring community that ensures all our neighbors have the nutritious food they need in Cape May, Cape May Point, West Cape May, and Lower Township. Our mission is to fight hunger through the procurement and distribution of groceries for qualified or low-income people, both on a regular schedule and on an emergency basis.
We accomplish our mission by partnering with donors and volunteers to provide more resources for those who face food insecurity. Over 120 volunteers contribute their time and expertise to our operation, and we always welcome more.
The Cape May Community Food Closet has been serving the people of the Cape May area since 1982. Since 2018, it has been a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is qualified to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions from individuals and businesses.
OUR FOOD CLOSET SERVES YEARLY
more than 1900 families
including 3000 adults
and 1100 children through food distributions and delivery on the second and fourth Friday of every month.
