Description

Neighbor to Neighbor Network works with the Human Needs Food Pantry in Montclair, NJ to deliver food to seniors and disabled individuals. The Human Needs Food Pantry currently provides weekly groceries to over 500 Bloomfield residents. They supply their clients with fresh fruits, vegetables, meat/poultry, and canned goods. Food delivery volunteers pick up bags of food from The Human Needs Food Pantry the same time each week and deliver them to a set route of about 5 residents who are unable, due to age or disability, to go to the pantry themselves. A food delivery route takes about 1 hour per week. A valid driver?s license and personal vehicle is required. Currently we have food runs Tuesday mornings, Thursday mornings, and Thursday evenings. This volunteer opportunity is very high impact because for some Bloomfield residents, this is their own source of food. One hour a week makes a tremendous difference. Requirements: A valid driver's license and personal vechile is required. Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have parental consent form.
