Many of our clients, friends and donors ask—when are we going to open the new facility? In a word-Soon. As we get the final permits, contractors complete their task and township grants final approval C of O (Certificate of Occupancy) -the USDA, Foodbank, State of NJ and Township will sign off and we can complete the task that has taken us 10 years and over $500,000.00 to complete.

As we go forward, our volunteers are diligently working to insure our clients have things they need most:

  • Back to School-distributed over 100 backpacks and school supplies.
  • Thanksgiving Turkey Dinners
  • Christmas
  • Coat Drive
  • The Move to our new Building
As well as an ever increasing need for food. The volunteers, trustees and churches of the Ministerium will be working to make things happen. We need you to continue to support us.

 The Pathway to Success!

The Bricks are In!

Food Supplies are low! - The drain on our food supplies is high. While our volunteers are busy, making preparation for the new building and the oncoming holidays - we are always on the lookout for more and better food supplies to support our communities. All donations, big or small are truly appreciated, every little bit helps. We cannot do it without you. Visit our How You Can Help page for more details.
