Easter Meal Dist Canceled Banner

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 the 2008 census, in just the food-bank-volunteerfive towns already noted, there were 144 families living in poverty and 946 individuals living in poverty. The majority of our clients reside in Monmouth County.  Click here to see what items the pantry currently needs.

    Yes we accept non perishable foods as long as they are not expired. We do not have a lot of restrictions, but here are some things that we regularly give out in bags for our clients:
    Canned Fruit
    Canned Veggies
    Canned meats – tuna, chicken, salmon
    Rice/pasta and sauce

    Hope this helps!
