Montgomery Food Pantry

 

Supporting Our Neighbors

There are people in Montgomery who are struggling to make ends meet. We recently reopened the pantry for client visits and many families are making appointments. Both monetary and non-perishable food donations are very much needed so that the Montgomery Food Pantry can meet the needs of our community during this difficult time, especially with the holiday season around the corner.

How You Can Help

Donations are still needed! These can be monetary, for use in purchasing ShopRite gift cards or they can be non-perishable and non-food grocery items. Most needed items are: laundry detergents, cleaning products, paper towels, toilet paper, boxed tissue, napkins, boxed cereal, canned tuna or chicken, mayonnaise, disposable face masks, and hand sanitizer.

Please contact the Recreation Department at (609) 466-3023 to drop off donations. Monetary donations can be mailed to the Montgomery Food Pantry, 356 Skillman Road, Skillman, NJ 08558.

Online donations can be made by visiting: https://register.communitypass.net/Montgomery. Once logged on, choose “Montgomery Recreation Trust Programs” and then select “Food Pantry Donations”.  If you have any questions, please email recreation@twp.montgomery.nj.us Thank you!!

Through the incredible generosity of many in our town, the Montgomery Township Food Pantry was able to meet the needs of struggling neighbors during this time. From April to September the Food Pantry sent out over $24,000.00 in ShopRite gift cards to more than 50 Montgomery families in need.

Once again, our community has demonstrated its genuine concern and stepped up to make a difference in the lives of many! Please help.
