Marketplace in Jersey City

Marketplace in Jersey City is a project dedicated to battling hunger and poverty in our community through an emergency food pantry. This project provides a meaningful volunteer experience in a positive, safe environment that is perfect for individuals, families, and groups of almost any size.

Volunteer today and make a measurable difference in the lives of many by, helping sort and organize the food pantry, and package the items for distribution to needy families.

On Friday, volunteers do prep work for Saturday which is distribution day. 

Tasks may include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Setting up

  • Bagging perishables

  • Cleaning Up

What to bring?

  • Gently used plastic trash bags for clients. This is not required but is certainly helpful.
