What We Do

Since 1982, HNFP has provided food, clothing, and other services to people in need who live in Montclair and neighboring communities in Essex County. Our diverse client base includes families and singles who are elderly, disabled, homebound, unemployed, or underemployed (working poor). Eligibility is determined using federal guidelines, which base need on income.

How You Can Help

A tough economic climate and high unemployment have pushed the demand for emergency and supplemental food to record levels, even as federal benefits such as SNAP are being cut.

That is why the Human Needs Food Pantry needs your help, so get involved:  DONATE, VOLUNTEER or RUN A DRIVE.
