Apostles’ House Food Pantry


We are a major resource which prevents or limits severe hunger in Newark. One of the largest food pantries in Essex County, we served over 8,500 people in 2007 and are one of only a handful open five days per week. The people we serve represent the many different faces of hunger from working families, to seniors raising grandchildren to single individuals many of whom are veterans. In addition, our “Ryan White” program provides food specifically to HIV/AIDS clients who are infected and affected by this disease. While feeding the hungry is critical, we also understand the need for lasting changes. The “Feed the Solution” program component of our pantry educates and advocates for changes that would positively impact food insecurity. Through seminars, advocacy workshops, educational materials for all ages and ongoing contact, supporters are educated on needs beyond emergency and charitable services. While our Food Pantry is often the first stop in our continuum of care, Feed the Solution is our last stop, addressing the struggle of all low-income wage earners.
