There are many ways you can help support the Raritan Food Pantry!  We appreciate your support in all forms!

Monetary Donation

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 and the first year's rent, however the grant cannot be used toward our second year rent, utilities, or 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!

Your Time & Talent

Your time is the most valuable asset in & out of the pantry.   






The pantry is a fully run volunteer organization that runs in many ways like 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 are an accountant, have experience with fundraising or community outreach, familiar with balancing books, etc., 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 or 908-824-5003.
