Support Our Food Pantry
The Assumption Food Pantry, a ministry of the Secular Franciscans, is located in the basement of the Fr. Hayes Center, 130 2nd Street, Wood-Ridge, NJ.
Anyone in need is welcome. The pantry opens Wednesday at 10:45A, however, you should call the Assumption Parish Office Tuesday afternoon after 4:00PM or Wednesday morning after 9:00AM to ensure that the pantry stock will support opening.
Food items (unexpired non-perishable items) can be left after weekend masses or any time in the marked bin inside the entrance to the church. The parish bulletin lists the weekly items being collected, however, our food staples include:
Canned tomatoes, jarred pasta sauce
Canned meats, stews, DAK ham
Peanut butter and jelly (plastic jars please)
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat..."
Financial Support is also appreciated for us to be able to purchase low inventory items and be able to provide gift cards (when possible) to shoppers.
Gift cards in the amount of $5.00 can be purchased from Shop-Rite or Stop and Shop. They can also be put in with your weekly donation or a plain white envelope with the words "Food Pantry' on it and placed in the collection basket at the weekend masses. You can also drop them at the parish office.
Checks made payable to Assumption Fraternity - Secular Franciscan Order can also be put in with your weekly donation or in a plain white envelope with the words 'Food Pantry' on it and placed in the collection basket at the weekend masses. You can also drop them at the parish office.
