IFPO leaders continue to work tirelessly and extensively to serve our neighbors as the situation related to COVID-19 continues to unfold. Although our usual physical space is still closed, we have secured temporary space and are distributing to clients by appointment. Appointments help us to serve clients quickly, avoids backlog of crowds, and allows everyone to social distance. 


The IFPO continues to work closely with the Community FoodBank of NJ to bring tens of thousands of pounds of perishable and non-perishable food to the City of Orange and East Orange Township for their direct distribution to residents in need.
