Thanks to the generosity of our donors and volunteers each month, our program serves families in need by providing them with non-perishable foods, toiletries, and other special seasonal items, as supplies allow. We also organize our special Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter programs whereby additional items are distributed to our client families.

Our food pantry is stocked by our parishioners and friends. We are also generously supported by many local schools, churches, social organizations, Bergen County Office of Food Security, Catholic Charities, Knights of Columbus, and others who organize food drives and other fundraisers to support our worthy cause.

Want to help us? We accept all donations of non-perishable food and toiletries, grocery gift cards, as well as monetary donations. During the holiday seasons of Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas only, we also accept frozen chickens, turkeys, and hams. Please bring any such perishable donations directly to the Epiphany Parish Office during normal operating hours (between 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.). All other non-perishable donations may be brought to one of the donation barrels located at the entrances of the church building. May God bless you for your generosity!
