A Community Care Food & Clothing Pantry Program
The Community Care Food & Clothing Pantry believes in bringing communities together as it has done since 2011. Inspired by real people in the community doing selfless acts of kindness to help their communities during COVID-19, we have created the Pop-up Pantry Series. Started in 2020, the Pop-Up Pantry project’s goal is to provide a service to people using quality fresh food and more to bring small communities and neighborhoods together. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all in each sector, class, and community so we believe hosting these events that include various resources from Medicare coverage assistance to voter registration and domestic violence to free food and supplies, we bring an elevated level of direct services to underserved communities.
Many people have suffered a major social change in their financial, health, and mental outlook. We want to help with the recovery of this social change by creating a new season of community togetherness done safely, with fun, and with a healthy purpose! For the Pop-up Pantry project we always try to look at ways to improve the overall “pantry going” experience. Our Pop-up events are informative using nutritional education including cooking demonstrations\, providing free Jersey Fresh produce, special prizes, fun and so much more.
Each Pop-up Pantry Series event and location is different. Depending on the location and audience, some Pop-up’s can be held indoors and have different set-ups, activities, and social service vendors.
