 UPDATE!

The NFSB Food Pantry team is happy to report we will be redistributing groceries for the 2018 Thanksgiving Initiative from the 169 Chestnut Street site. We are distributing: Monday, 11/19 and Tuesday, 11/20 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm and on Wednesday, 11/21 from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. The Food Pantry will be closed on Thursday and Friday of Thanksgiving week.

Please be aware, the 169 Chestnut Street site is still under construction and you may be entering the building from the rear entrance and going down the rear stairs. We look forward to the elevator being fully functional very soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding during our reconstruction.

Please let the Food Pantry team know if you will be requesting a Thanksgiving Bag, a Turkey or both for this year’s holiday distribution. Food donations may be dropped off at the designated bins on the front stairs of 169 Chestnut Street (please call the office at 973-667-1884 for sizeable donations). Nutley Park ShopRite is partnering with NFSB to help you donate your FREE turkey. Please call the NFSB Main Office at 973 667 1884 with questions.
