How To Help
The Flemington Area Food Pantry is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which means donations are tax deductible within the limits permitted by law. Our Executive Director and two part-time assistants are the only paid employees, and our expenses are limited to their salaries, operating costs (phone, electricity, etc.), and the cost of the purchased food and personal care products we distribute to those in need.
You can donate to the pantry by clicking on the Donate button or mailing a check made payable to the Flemington Area Food Pantry to:
Flemington Area Food Pantry
PO Box 783
Flemington, NJ 08822
Food and personal care products can be donated at one of our convenient drop off boxes in the Flemington ShopRite and the Flemington Stop & Shop. A list of our current needs can be found in the Help Us section of this website. Please be sure donated food packaging has not been opened and has not passed its “use by” or “sell by” date.
If you are a farmer with surplus food crops, or a grocer who would like to donate food or personal care items, please call 908-788-5568 to find out how you can help.
Volunteers are always needed to pick up food and personal care items at local supermarkets, collection boxes, and other locations. Volunteers also work at the Pantry sorting and shelving items, distributing groceries to our clients, and helping with clerical and office tasks. Please visit the Help Us page for details or email our Volunteer Director.
