Hundreds of families in Mercer County must decide each month whether to buy food or to pay the rent. Emergency food bags are available from our FoodPantry for the growing number of families and seniors who can’t afford enough food to make it through the month. HomeFront distributes approximately 700 bags of free groceries to low-income families each month. HomeFront also coordinates the delivery of donated hot meals prepared by area congregations and community groups. These dedicated volunteers also donate and prepare food for HomeFront events from holiday parties to graduation ceremonies. To participate contact us at getinvolved@homefrontnj.org. Last year we distributed more than $2.6 million worth of donated goods and professional services to our families. Emergency Food Bags Once a month, clients may receive a grocery bag filled with a week’s supply of food from our food pantry. Food is obtained from the Mercer Street Friends food bank, USDA surplus items and local food drives.

Our FreeStore provides families impacted by poverty with donated small household and clothing items. Worn-out or ill-fitting garments are not conducive to success, so the FreeStore provides children and parents with presentable, gently worn clothing and shoes for school and work. When a new job or an impending job interview calls for something special, clients can shop for professional attire in a special room within the store. Call our front desk to find out how you can sign up for a visit to our FreeStore.
