Food Pantries

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

CFCS bridges an ever widening gap between public resources and poverty. We rely on the community to support the poor and the vulnerable in our communities, to meet the growing demand for services.

Catholic Family and Community services is unique in that we provide support for people of all ages, backgrounds, and demographics. We harness county, state, federal, private, corporate, and foundation based funding to successfully operate a multitude of programs for those most in need.

For over 75 years, Catholic Family and Community Services, has provided at little or no cost, a full spectrum of services to individuals who are oppressed, families who are in crisis and communities who are disenfranchised.

We will always assist our clients, staff and volunteers to live in socially responsible freedom, to exercise their authentic autonomy in light of objective truth and to actualize their inherent potential as beings created in the image and likeness of God. CFCS affirms that the poorest and most vulnerable persons and families have a special claim to our services and programs.

Our program leaders work with stakeholders across New Jersey to attain funding for our vital programs, through accreditation and quality improvement we assure that our programs preform at high level.

In 2017, we began to work more collaboratively with other Catholic Charities agencies within the Diocese of Paterson, and formed a new Board of Trustees. This board and its committees meet with organizational leadership regularly to assure that all our programs are providing help and creating hope for those in need.

1. We are one of the longest running human services organizations in New Jersey. For over 75 years, Catholic Family and Community Services has provided at little or no cost, a full spectrum of services to individuals who are oppressed, families who are in crisis and communities who are disenfranchised.
2. We provide a uniquely wide array of services for all those in need: including support for children of all ages, help to at risk youth, assistance for families in crisis, three food pantries, immigration legal services, companionship and help for senior citizens, and support for veterans.
3. We operate three pantries including: Father English center, which is one for the largest food pantries in all of New Jersey. These pantries are completely funded through donations.
4. Through Covid-19, we continued out vital services. In some programs, we have been able to provide a remarkably increased level of service, while other programs pivoted to virtual support.
