Food Pantry

 

TOUCH New Jersey coordinates and administers an all-volunteer food Pantry which is based in the New Beginnings Church at 549 State Street. The pantry is open each Wednesday for 4 hours, allowing low-income, elderly and disabled residents to “shop” for fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, dairy, bread and other food staples. TOUCH’s operations are staffed by volunteers, currently “rescuing” and distributing an average of 9500 pounds of food per week.

As a certified agency with Philabundance, TOUCH New Jersey receives foodstuffs from ACME supermarkets throughout South Jersey in Willingboro,  Moorestown, Maple Shade, Audubon, Voorhees and Runnemede as well as the Walmart in Williamstown and the Philabundance Produce Hub in South Philadelphia. Touch also independently receives bread and pastry from Deluxe Bakery in Runnemede and has also added to its weekly pickups through the Aldi store in South Philadelphia and the Acme in Pennsville New Jersey.
