We will be having MEND’s “Green Bean” bus at our Open House at 152 Prospect Street in South Orange on Sunday, November 4th from 1-4 pm.
MEND is an interfaith network of 17 member food pantries located throughout Essex County, NJ. Our hunger relief network, the largest in Essex County, has been providing food to individuals and families in need since 1980.
MEND is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that strengthens and supports its food pantry network by providing supplemental food, funds, volunteers, and a monthly forum for collaboration. MEND also advocates for policies to improve the quality of life for those in need in the County.
Member pantries benefit from MEND’s economies of scale and support, while retaining their independence.
