Our History

 

 

 

 

 

The Office of Concern Food Pantry

at Saint Cecilia’s Parish

“Helping the Needy of any Religion, Race or Culture”

 

 

Mission

  We aid the hungry and needy.  Since 1980 the Office of Concern Food Pantry has been dedicated to serving “the poorest of the poor” in our area.  We supplement their food and other basic needs of daily life.

 

 

 

Outreach

Our families include the working poor, retirees, and those struggling to feed babies and small children. Once a family registers with us they can come to our location and receive food once a week. Currently over 900 families are registered with us and over 650 come in each week. In 2013 we distributed 250 tons of food… approximately 5 tons per week… making us one of the largest food pantries in Bergen Country, NJ!

 

Programs

Nutritional Program – We distribute bags of non-perishable grocery items every week. When available these are supplemented with: Meat and Fish – turkeys are distributed at Thanksgiving; Dairy Products – Margarine, milk, eggs, cheese; and Bakery Items – Bread, rolls, cake; Fresh Produce – Fruits and vegetables

Hygiene Program – An item such as soap, shampoo, and toothpaste is given weekly.

Diaper Program – Diapers are given weekly to families with infants.

Christmas Toy Drive – We conduct an annual toy drive in an effort to supply at least one toy to each child.

Homeless and Nurturing Centers – We donate to nearby centers caring for needy children and the homeless when possible

 

Eligibility

All those in need and hungry will always receive an emergency supply of food. No appointment or social service referral is necessary. To receive food on a weekly basis the family must register with us and their family income must be at or below U.S. government poverty levels.

 

 

Resources

We operate through the generosity of foundations, businesses, churches, schools, community organizations, and individuals. Contributions include food, grants, supermarket gift cards, and monetary donations. All contributions are tax deductible. We are associated with the Community Food Bank of New Jersey and participate in federal and New Jersey state food programs.

 

 

What Makes us Unique

We are staffed by volunteers four days a week. Nearly every dollar contributed to us goes directly into helping the needy.
