The Sharing Place Food Pantry
440 Hoboken Avenue
Jersey City, NJ - 07306
The Sharing Place distributes food the last two Saturday mornings of each month, 7:30 to 12:00 Noon. Proof of residency in Hudson County, and indication of eligibility based on referral or benefits document and/or low income is requested. Distribution is from the Community Hall; enter up the parking lot driveway to the left (west) of St Paul's Lutheran Church, near Five Corners.
We need 15-20 volunteers each Saturday of operation to fully staff the Sharing Place. Many volunteers are members and friends of St. Paul Church, but many come from the neighborhood and from community groups. Some volunteers carry boxes of food, but there are lighter jobs too, including packing bags or making baloney-and-cheese sandwiches. We also need volunteers to unload the food truck on the third Wednesday of each month, approximately 8:00 am. If you would like to help our indigent neighbors by serving at the Sharing Place, please contact us for more information.
