Kings Donates Turkeys To MEND Pantries!

Many thanks to Kings Corporate for the generous donation of 100 turkeys to distribute to our nineteen food pantries.

Please consider donating to MEND or your local food pantry this Thanksgiving. For more information, please email info@mendnj.org. Happy Thanksgiving!


cornucopiaMEND’S food pantry supplies are critically low. Many are hard pressed to provide a nutritionally-balanced food package to families in need. You can make an important difference by participating in the MEND Harvest of Hope food drive. Especially needed are peanut butter, jelly, meals in a can, soup, crackers, spaghetti sauce, cereal and fruit. For ideas and literature on how to run a food drive, or to make an appointment to have your collection picked up by the MEND food van, please contact us at (973) 266-7941  or info@mendnj.org.
