Our generous donors are the lifeblood of the food pantry, enabling us to provide this form of support to the food insecure. Our volunteers are church members, local businesses, scout troops, local school students, families, chambers of commerce, and many other generous, caring community members and organizations. Food drop off times are from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Donation drop off is located at the FPC Social Center at 270 Woodbridge Avenue, Metuchen, NJ 08840. The donation bins are located outside the building (yellow lid), or inside the lobby. If you have a large donation, or items that are perishable and need refrigeration, please contact the food pantry at (732) 491-2325 to schedule your drop off for when we are open. Thank you!
The Mission of the First Presbyterian Church of Metuchen Food Pantry is to:
- Provide healthy food in a dignified way to those in need in the Metuchen/Edison area, without regard to race, color, religion, age, handicap, sex, or national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
- Strengthen the community while providing individuals and groups with the ability to serve others through volunteering time and/or giving food or monetary donations.
- Educate clients and the public of additional programs and issues of hunger in the area.
The Food Pantry operates as a component of a comprehensive path for dependent or needy families and individuals as they become more financially stable or move toward complete independence.
