Office of Concern Food Pantry at St. Cecilia
55 W Demarest Ave
Englewood, NJ - 07631
Office hours: Monday through Thursday 9am to 1pm
The Office of Concern was started in 1980 to help a few families who were displaced by a fire. From that beginning we have become the largest single location food pantry in Bergen County, NJ.
Our families include the working poor, retirees, and those struggling to feed babies and small children. Once a family registers with us they can come to our location and receive food once a week. Currently over 1000 families are registered with us. In 2013 we distributed 250 tons of food… approximately 5 tons per week… making us one of the largest food pantries in northern New Jersey.
Nutritional Program – We distribute bags of non-perishable grocery items every week. Through our special “Nutrition Plus” program, we supplement our bags with lean meats, dairy products, and fresh fruits and vegetables.
An item such as soap, shampoo, and toothpaste is given weekly.
Diapers are given weekly to families with infants.
Eligibility: All those in need and hungry will always receive an emergency supply of food. No appointment or social service referral is necessary. To receive food on a weekly basis the family must register with us and their family income must be at or below U.S. government poverty levels.
