Notes From the Pantry

We’ve Got Your Back – School Supply Drive


We are collecting the following school supplies for our “We’ve Got Your Back” program which distributes new backpacks and school supplies to local families in need.

In 2020, we served on average about 26,300 Morris County households struggling to put food on the table each month. When families can barely afford food, the expense of back-to-school supplies can put a strain on already tight household budgets. Below is a list of the schools supplies that we are collecting.
