Family Promise has been committed to feeding the hungry since 1991. Over the past 28 years we have served well over 1.2 million meals. Every day of the year, a group from our network of congregations, businesses and civic organizations prepares and serves a nutritious meal for approximately 130 people at the Bergen County Housing, Health and Human Services Center in Hackensack. Most of our guests are residents of the shelter, but the program is open to anyone in the community in need of a meal. Special dinners are served on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Please note that cooking must be done off-site and dates are scheduled several months in advance.
For more information on how your organization can get involved, or to schedule a date, please email our Director of Volunteers, Margo Heller, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at (201) 833-8009.
