Blessed Hope Soup Kitchen
Phillipsburg, NJ 08865
Details: We are the first hot-meal program in Warren County, New Jersey. Since 1986, our trained volunteers continue to serve hot meals to the underprivileged men, women and children in our surrounding communities. The volunteers come from our congregation as well as our community. Our mission is simple - to find a need and fill it. Although we have built this outreach on a foundation of hot meals, we continue to augment our services. Once a month, we provide our grounds to the volunteers of Mother's Cupboard who truck in, set up and give away clothing and household items. We prepare special Sunday dinners during Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. At Christmas, with the help of generous donors, we provide toys, gifts and food to needy families. In the past, as equipment and talent arrived, we were able to offer computer training and remedial reading. Through the Warren County Health Bureau, NORWESCAP and our own Safely-Serve Certification program, we provide a safe, clean environment to the public. We thank all our donors - large and small, frequent and occasional, anonymous and named - for their generous contributions of money, food, equipment, supplies and talent to this much-needed effort. They have made a huge difference in people's lives.

Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday – 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Thursday – 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Households accept once per month a five to seven day supply of groceries for the preparation of nutritious meals. The food pantry retains an inventory of the recommended dietary nutrients of grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy and protein products. The number of bags received is determined by family size and living situations. Circumstances can warrant additional requests within the established time period. Through a collaborative effort with local senior citizen complexes, commodities are delivered on a quarterly schedule. Case Management is offered as a support to people in need of encouragement, information, referral and advocacy services. Those applying for food assistance must live in Warren County with earnings not more than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level Guidelines. Documentation required at the initial interview includes proof of identification, residency and source of income for all members of the household. These records are updated on a yearly basis unless a change occurs within the designated time period. Appointments are not necessary as aid is given on a walk-in basis. The location of the food pantry is within the boundary of a bus route.
