for New Hope Community Ministries
New Hope Community Ministries is laser-focused on providing critical food aid to families suffering from the economic fallout of COVID-19. Approximately 30% of Haledon and Prospect Park, NJ households have incomes that qualify for food assistance. That is over 4,000 people. This population is particularly vulnerable in economic downturns in which layoffs, work stoppages, and reduction of hours are widespread. The need for food assistance will greatly increase in the next few weeks and months as the community faces the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is the time when our community needs us the most. We need you to step up and help us support these families. As the need for food assistance increases, our normal food supply is in jeopardy. 70% of our food comes from individuals, most of which is collected at local churches. With churches not meeting and people practicing social distancing, our incoming food supply will drop significantly unless we change our strategy. That's where YouGiveGoods comes in.
New Hope Community Ministries is determined to keep our Food Pantry OPEN to help support community members and families who are facing food insecurity in these difficult times. Please consider purchasing from the list of food needs online so that we may be able to restock our pantry and continue to serve our community!
