Please consider a one time or recurring monetary donation!
Raritan Food Pantry is a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers.We are dependent on donations to allow us to continue to serve our community. The pantry has been allotted some grant money that can be used for the purchase of food through the rest of 2022, however the grant cannot be used toward the purchase of non-food essentials (such as soap, shampoo, toilet paper, cleaning products, etc). We are completely dependent upon monetary donations for the pantry to be sustainable long term.
Your generous contributions in all forms are most appreciated!

Please bring your donation during our pantry hours listed below. You may also make a monetary donation designated for this collection in person or via our PayPal link with a note to indicate the funds are for this cause.
In an effort to save on costs, we purchase eggs in bulk at Costco. The pantry is currently very low on egg cartons and would appreciate any donations of these as well (Sized for 6, 9, or 12 eggs maximum please).
**Please do not leave donations at the door when the store is not opened. Items left unattended at the store will not be able to be accepted for distribution.
Your Time & Talent
Your time is the most valuable asset in & out of the pantry.
The pantry is a fully run volunteer organization but is also a business. As with any business, we have many jobs to keep it running smoothly and successfully for our community. There are many opportunities to help if working in the pantry doesn't fit your schedule. Our website, for example, was created and is administered by a volunteer!
If you have experience with fundraising or community outreach, are handy and want to help with painting or building shelves, know how to organize an event such as a 5k, love to sew or crochet and can help provide items such as kitchen scrubbies or curtains, or have any other skill or talent that would be useful, please complete our online form and someone will contact you to discuss or reach out to us at email@example.com or 908-824-5003.
