PCTR Food Pantry at The HOPE Center
Toms River, NJ 08753
Details: As part of our partnership with the House of Hope, PCTR runs a Food Pantry that last year provided over 3,000 bags of food to those in need in our local community. We are excited about a new partnership with The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties that has allowed us to stretch our food pantry dollars even further to better provide to the many adults and children that go hungry in our community each day. We are always looking for donations of food and money to continue this important ministry that impacts the lives of so many. In particular, our partnership with the FoodBank allows us to purchase food at a fraction of the cost that items can be purchased from a grocery store. Items that are in constant need are: Vegetables, Cereal, Milk, Soup, Chili, Stew, Canned Fruit, Hash, Luncheon Meat, Peanut Butter, and Potatoes (canned or dried); Toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, personal care products, and cleaning supplies. Food donations can be dropped off at the church or The HOPE Center. Checks can be made out to “PCTR” with “Food Pantry” in the Memo and dropped off or mailed to the church. To contact the Food Pantry call the Hope Center at 732-341-4447.
The Peoples Pantry
Toms River, NJ 08735
Details: The Peoples Pantry is a choice model food Pantry that originated in the immediate aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. This severe storm unearthed Ocean County's previously hidden struggle with food insecurity. Food insecurity, or lack of a consistent and stable source of food, effects over 79,000 residents of our county...but you probably wouldn't be able to tell. They're the single parents of four who can't afford to feed their children on a single income. They're your coworkers who are forced to live paycheck to paycheck. They're even your friends and family who are struggling in silence because they don't qualify for government assistance. One of our main goals is to break the stigma surrounding food insecurity and educate others about the true prevalence of the problem.
