Holy Spirit also appreciates financial support, which enables it to purchase low inventory items and be able to provide gift cards (when possible) to shoppers. The Food Pantry is a ministry of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit and your financial donation is tax deductible.

The Food Pantry is open from 9 to 11 a.m. on the fourth Saturday of every month; it will be open next on Saturday, February 24. Anyone in need is welcome. If you need assistance in an emergency, before this date, please contact the church office at [email protected] or leave a voicemail at (973) 239-2850 to make arrangements. The church is very sensitive to people’s privacy and will do whatever it can to ensure anonymity of recipients.
