Help us Fight Hunger!


If you are not using your free holiday item from ShopRite, please consider donating it to our food pantry:
Turkey, ham, lasagna, chicken etc. are all accepted. 

Our local Cub Scout Troop 143, is currently partnering with the children of LP schools on a holiday project. 
Their goal is to collect donations, to make up special holiday bags, for full Thanksgiving dinners, for our 50 families in need. 
Please help make their project a success ! 

We are currently collecting: 
boxed stuffing, canned turkey gravy, cranberry sauce, macaroni and cheese,
boxed instant potatoes, canned corn, turkey/chicken stock or broth 
boxed cake/cookie mix, cans of frosting 

Drop off locations are at the LPEMS & LPMS.

It is the end of the year,  and our budget is dwindling. 
We desperately need funds to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables monthly for our families. 
If you or your organization would like to make a monetary donation please send a check made out to:
The Borough of Lincoln Park
34 Chapel Hill Road 
Lincoln Park, NJ 07035

Please indicate it is for the LP Food Pantry. 
We also accept gift cards. 

Thank you!
