Q:  Should food be dropped off at the Pantry, or can it be picked up?

A:  Particularly at this time of year, our volunteers are very busy, so if at all possible, please bring the food to the Pantry’s warehouse location.  If necessary, we can arrange a pick-up. To do so, call 973-538-8049.


Q: What can I do to help on Thanksgiving Day?

A: To allow our staff and volunteers to spend holiday with their families, the Interfaith Food Pantry is closed from noon on Wednesday, November 21 (the day before Thanksgiving) through Sunday, November 25, reopening November 26.  All volunteer opportunities for individuals are fully booked through November. 

If you’d like to take action to help, join us for our annual Turkey Trot, which takes place on Thanksgiving morning!

Q. Do you need volunteers?

   A: Believe it or not we get more requests for help than we have work slots to fill! But we'd still love to hear from you. Please fill out a Volunteer Application and we will get back to you, but please be patient since call volume is very high.
