CAPC Soup Kitchen
Plainfield, NJ 07060
Details: Many individuals and families in Plainfield have been hit particularly hard financially. The numbers of those who are on the streets or living in shelters is on the rise. People are left hungry but thanks to the generosity of the Keyes Foundation, other generous donors and dedicated volunteers, fewer are hungry and hope is found here once again. On Tuesdays, a full lunch is served beginning at noon under the auspices of the Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church's Soup Kitchen (CAPC Soup Kitchen) in Plainfield, NJ. Volunteers gather at 9 a.m. to begin preparations and ensure all is ready for the lunch guests. Church groups and other volunteer organizations are welcomed to come and help with the preparation and serving! Quoted as being 'The Olive Garden of Plainfield' the CAPC Soup Kitchen is open to all and exists completely on the gifts of others. Costco donates food goods as well. 100% of donations goes directly towards foodstuffs.

We operate three days each week throughout the year, preparing and distributing grocery food orders to an average of thirty to thirty-five families in need each week. Our primary function is to maintain the food pantry. Our volunteers pack and deliver grocery food orders to clients who have been referred to us by local social service agencies. Using a referral system helps us better manage our resources. These agencies vet the client to help assure that our limited resources are given to those truly in need. We also prepare special food orders for 160 families at Easter, Thanksgiving, and at Christmas.
