Trinity United Methodist Church in Hackettstown seeking volunteers for food pantry

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – The Trinity Church Lord’s Pantry is in need of volunteers and substitutes.

The pantry, which is located in the “Barn” adjacent to Trinity Church’s main parking lot, is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. as well as Tuesday evenings 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

The Lord’s Pantry is a food distribution ministry that provides free food to those in need. Guests are invited to receive food once a month. Volunteers pick up food, stock shelves, assist guests and do related tasks.

The pantry provides nutritious food to residents of the Hackettstown area as a supplement to their regular food shopping. It is here for you in your time of need. All food is generously donated by members of Trinity United Methodist Church and many other residents/organizations/ businesses of the community.

Recipients are allowed to select what they want using a shopping guide based on the number of people in their household. (All people living at one address are considered one family.) This method allows freedom of choice and eliminates waste. The Pantry’s intention is to provide families with basic nutritious food. Dessert items, snacks, coffee, etc. will be available only when donations are received.

In addition to our regular food program, the Lord’s Pantry offers a supplemental USDA program to those who qualify: WIC, Medicaid, Food Stamp Program, and Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, Supplement Security Income (SSI) or Low Income per current state guidelines. Anyone who has a least one of these qualifiers can receive USDA food, regardless of where they reside.

If your interested in volunteering, contact the church office at 908-852-3020.
