Walk-In Dinner Program

Family Promise of Bergen County walk-in dinner program

Family Promise has been providing food security since 1991, serving well over 1.4 million meals. Thanks to the dedication of our volunteers and food providers, the Walk-in Dinner program has not missed a single day of serving meals to residents of the Bergen County homeless shelter and to food insecure community members who ‘walk in’ for meals. Not even snow or a global pandemic can stop us! Thank you to all of our amazing food providers and volunteers who have been tirelessly helping us fulfill our mission!

To help fulfill our mission, we schedule daily teams of volunteers at least one week in advance. For information on how you can volunteer to help address food insecurity among our neighbors, please contact Director of Volunteers, Margo Heller: mheller@bergenfamilypromise.org

2024 Status Update 

Last year, we served a record number of more than 70,000 meals at the Walk-In Dinner program! With the alarming rise in food insecurity, we are seeking groups (congregations, businesses, civic organizations), to provide the 200 complete dinners we serve on a given day or funding to help us pay for them. If you are interested in providing meals, please contact Director of Volunteers Margo Heller, mheller@bergenfamilypromise.org.
