FOOD PANTRY ACCEPTING MONETARY DONATIONS

Due to the Governor’s orders related to COVID-19, the Montgomery Township Food Pantry (MTFP) is closed and cannot accept donations of food or non-food grocery items at this time. We do not yet know when it will physically re-open or when it will begin to again accept donations of non-perishable food or non-food grocery items.

In order to continue to support current MTFP families and additional families in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are collecting donations on-line to purchase Shop Rite gift cards. To donate, please visit: https://register.communitypass.net/Montgomery. Once logged on, please choose “Montgomery Recreation Trust Programs” and then select “Food Pantry Donations”.  If you have any questions, please email recreation@twp.montgomery.nj.us or call 609-466-3023 and someone will get back to you within 24 hours. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
