Our current enrollment is approximately 300 food-insecure individuals and families. Although some do not participate every month, our volunteers can always be found preparing food packages for many families in a single day. The churches of the Manasquan Ministerium are located in Manasquan, Spring Lake, Spring Lake Heights, Brielle, and Sea Girt; however, the pantry receives clients from many other Jersey Shore towns. As of 2020, the average percentage of people living in poverty for the five towns already noted was 4.06%. The majority of our clients reside in Monmouth County. Below is a list of the Pantry’s current needs:

  • Canned Fruit
  • White Rice (not instant)
  • Dried Beans
  • Canned Chicken
  • Oatmeal (any kind)
  • Instant Potatoes
  • Kids’ Cereal
  • Baked Beans
  • Pasta Sauce

Aldi and ShopRite gift cards are also appreciated.

Donations may be brought to the pantry during our operating hours or left in the black bin located outside the church entrance.  Thank you.
