OUR MISSION

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.
