NFSB is a member of the Community Foodbank of New Jersey

Responding to the needs of those among us who experience food Insecurity is in keeping with NFSB’s mission to strengthen the community.

Any Nutley resident who is experiencing food insecurity* is eligible for NFSB Pantry enrollment.

*The US Department of Agriculture defines household food insecurity as “limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods.”

The Food Pantry

Unfortunately, life doesn’t always go as planned and something you’ve always taken for granted, like having enough food to eat, becomes difficult.

The Food Pantry can provide you with healthy, nutritious food and connect you with resources for additional assistance.

Appointments are scheduled every other week to allow time for personalized shopping at the Pantry.

We also provide senior home delivery and emergency assistance if you need food right away.

The Impact of Food Insecurity

Life is harder when you’re hungry.

Food insecurity can have a direct impact on performance at work and school, mental and physical health, relationships, and more.

Personalized "Shopping"

We offer healthy, nutritious food and enable clients to choose their own fresh produce and proteins and non-perishables.

We also deliver groceries to homebound seniors.

How to Get Started

There is no shame in seeking help!

Call for a confidential appointment. We’ll discuss your dietary needs and challenges and make sure you receive the assistance you need.

The NFSB Food Pantry is an inclusive environment, which guards client confidentiality and respects personal privacy.

Pantry personnel assist with the enrollment process. No documentation is required at this time when you self-declare and have a Nutley ID.

Food insecurity rates in our area are higher than the national average.

The NFSB Food Pantry is working to reverse those trends.

Walk-in to start the process Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. (entrance is side door of 169 Chestnut St by municipal parking lot)
