Food Pantries in the Greater Long Branch Area

Food pantries are an essential asset to the Long Branch community. Each month, member churches help feed over 350 families in need in the area. Building capacity to meet the ever-expanding numbers of hungry people in our community has been a primary goal of the Ministerium. With the help of a grant from the Long Branch Rotary Club and donations from its members, the Ministerium has provided additional freezers, shelving and essential support to several food pantries.

Our efforts cannot be continue without the essential volunteers who donate their time, those who donate nonperishable foods, and those who help fund the food pantries. If you would like to donate or volunteer to help out in any way, please contact Rev. P. Susan Mamchak. via e-mail at or 732-618-2440.
