With high costs for housing, clothing, and medical care, many of our neighbors struggle to get enough to eat. Hunger affects people of all ages and walks of life. It is both a problem in rural and urban areas. In response, the West Milford Presbyterian Church Food Pantry provides a large selection of non-perishable foods and personal necessities to approximately 400 visitors a year. This effort is only made possible through the generosity of many local community organizations, schools, and individuals.
The Pantry will no longer be open the first Saturday of the month. Instead, we ask that you please call the number 973-768-9468 and someone will get back to you in regards to the items you may need. Your items will be packed and places outside the kitchen door by the Church parking lot.
We strive to provide our guests with a selection of non-perishable foods and personal hygiene products, however, there are many days where our shelves are bare and we are unable to fulfill their needs.
The following is a list of items that our pantry runs out of on a monthly basis and is always is need of:
