New Dover United Methodist Church Food Pantry

The Food Pantry is maintained throughout the year. The food donations are used to make holiday baskets, to help a family in need and given to local food pantry's to help supplement their pantry.  If you are in need, the Pantry is available during church office hours.

Community Food Bank of Hillside

ON SATURDAY, APRIL 7TH, 15 PEOPLE FROM NEW DOVER GATHERED TOGETHER TO VOLUNTEER THEIR TIME AND TALENTS AT THE HILLSIDE COMMUNITY FOOD BANK.  WOW – ONE OF OUR LARGEST GROUPS EVER – WAY TO GO NEW DOVER!  THERE WE COMBINED WITH TWO OTHER CHURCH GROUPS TO SORT AND BOX DONATED FOOD AND GROCERY ITEMS, WHICH WILL THEN BE DISTRIBUTED TO FOOD PANTRIES, SENIOR CENTERS AND SHELTERS ACROSS OUR STATE.

THE FOOD BANK WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1982 AND HAS BEEN DOING GREAT THINGS FOR THE PEOPLE OF OUR STATE EVER SINCE.  DID YOU KNOW THAT ONE MILLION (!!) PEOPLE IN NEW JERSEY FACE HUNGER EVERY DAY? ALMOST ONE-THIRD OF THEM ARE CHILDREN, WHO CAN SUFFER DIRECT AND DRAMATIC EFFECTS ON THEIR PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT WHEN THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TO EAT.  CHECK OUT ALL THE GOOD WORKS THAT THE FOOD BANK DOES AT WWW.CFBNJ.ORG.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO VOLUNTEERED.
