HELP FOR THE HOLIDAYS: The Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges has been experiencing extremely high demand for services in the past few weeks. Last month, alone, we served over 1,500 people. With the holidays approaching, IFPO has many ways you and your friends can get involved and “Help for the Holidays,” even if you aren’t available during our normal Wednesday operating hours. Between the Thanksgiving and Christmas distributions alone, we expect to aid 600 clients, or more than 2,000 people!
“Help for the Holidays” includes opportunities to donate new and gently used coats, toys and housewares; donate your ShopRite “reward” turkey; prepare food for a hot holiday luncheon and of course volunteer on our two biggest days of the year, November 26th and December 17th.
The Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges (IFPO) provides supplemental and emergency food to those in need who live in the cities of Orange and East Orange, New Jersey.
The pantry is housed in the Church of the Epiphany
105 Main Street, Orange, NJ
Wednesdays 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Except the first Wednesday of the month
On average, IFPO serves more than 140 families per week, which adds up to 1,200 or more people per month. The pantry is a collaboration among Christ Church of Short Hills, Congregation Beth El, Congregation B’nai Jeshurun, and Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel. Many volunteers and donations are needed in order to meet our goal of feeding every person who comes to us in need.
