Food Pantry Update!

Thank you for your continued support of this incredibly important, grassroots effort.  We are so appreciative of those who have contributed their time as volunteers and those who have donated food and/or money.


Last week, 229 bags of food and other supplies were distributed across both Gladstone (Peapack Reformed Church) and Bernardsville (St Bernards).


To date,  our community has given out over 500 bags in Bernardsville and over 85 bags in Gladstone.


Special thanks go to


  • Chief Valentine (Bernardsville OEM) for his tireless dedication and support

  • Pastor Beth (St Bernards) for sharing her time, efforts, and her church in support of this effort

  • Pastor Dan (Camino de Fe) for his dedication to and love for our community

  • And to Ed Knoblach for always being there


We hope that you continue to support the effort by donating food or money that will be shared with those in need.
