The Champion House Food & Clothing pantry has a goal of providing food and clothing necessities to those in need. Food packages, baby items and a wide range of clothing, shoes and coats are available for the whole family from our Ann St. location - appointments are not required but they are encouraged.

There are many food insecure individuals and families in our community. Vulnerable members of our community participating in the NJ SNAP program may run out of resources toward the end of the month and need extra assistance to feed themselves and their families.

We provide one monthly food package, containing non-perishable groceries and fresh produce to eligible individuals and families. To access the food pantry, you must bring:

  • Government ID
  • Social Security card
  • Proof of Recent Residency (lease, mail addressed to you, library card, proof of income). If you are not receiving income, you must fill out a zero-income verification form.

If you are currently without a government ID, we can provide you with one complimentary food package and refer you to our case management team, who can assist you in applying for new identification documents.
