What We Do

nourish.NJ creates lasting solutions to the problems of hunger, homelessness and poverty. We offer food, housing, work readiness, medical, social and educational services 365 days a year in a warm, safe and caring environment, free of charge, no questions asked. 

In 2020, we distributed 750,000 pounds of food for our guests to take home, and connected our guests with: 

  • Mental health counseling
  • Substance abuse outreach
  • Outreach to veterans
  • Employment counseling and an Annual Job Fair
  • Housing and daily living assistance such as accessing food stamps
  • Nursing consultations and health screenings
  • Emergency assistance for food, clothing and basic necessities
  • English as a Second Language classes and translation services

Our Free Farmer's Markets provide fresh fruit, vegetables, dairy items and meat for guests to take home multiple times a week. Many mothers with young children come each week to pick up fresh items to cook healthy meals for their families.
