Free grab-and-go lunch for children up to age 18

PHILLIPSBURG, NJ (Warren County) – When school closes in June, many children lose their only reliable source of food. The Food Bank hosts a federally funded Summer Food Service Program in Phillipsburg.

The program provides a free nutritious lunch to children up to the age of 18, Monday through Friday during the months of July and August.

Through this program, during the summer of 2019 over 4,000 free lunches were provided to children at several locations in Phillipsburg.

Walk in sites:

  • Firth Youth Center, located at 108 Fleming Drive, in Phillipsburg
  • Phillipsburg Housing Authority Community Room, located at 535 Fisher Avenue, in Phillipsburg

Anyone interested in helping feed children over the summer months, you are welcome to volunteer with their Food Bank. This volunteer opportunity can either be an individual or group effort with a rotating schedule.
