Imagine not being able to feed your child or having to forego meals yourself in order to pay rent. Unfortunately, that's the reality for 63,000 Ocean County residents.
The People's Pantry, which was founded immediately after Superstorm Sandy, is a choice-model food pantry that mimics both the layout and general experience of a grocery store. Clients are encouraged to take a cart, browse our shelves and pick items that fit their family's unique dietary needs. Our large variety of meats, diary products, fresh produce and other items ensure that there's someting for every one (even those who like pigs feet!) But we need your help to continue our mission and to educate others about the prevelance of food insecurity in our county.
The Peoples Pantry exists to lend a branch up to families in need; whether that is a chronic need or a temporary one, our Pantry will always be a safe haven.
