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.
Where & When
The Human Needs Food Pantry is located at 9 Label Street in Montclair. We are open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon for donation drop-offs, and from noon to 2:30 p.m. for client pick-up. We are also open on Thursday nights from 5:30-6:30 for clients who work during the day.
Check our Facebook page for information on monthly Food Pantry Weekend Donation Days.
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.
