Food Pantry

Food Pantry

"I was hungry and you gave me food, thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me."  – Matthew 25:35

In October of 2002, Holy Trinity started the Food Pantry in response to the growing needs we witnessed at Christine’s Kitchen.  We recognized that our guests still lacked the food the other six days of the week, especially toward the end of the month, when welfare and food stamps were running low.  Our parishioners donate food, and we work with local agencies and the Community Food Bank of Hillside to provide the necessary groceries that these families require.  West Orange schools, businesses, organizations, and individuals all generously help in donating food and providing financial support.
