Food Pantry

Our Food Pantry is open the third Saturday of each month from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM.

Current Food Pantry Procedures due to COVID-19:

With many local residents being out of work or working with reduced incomes, the need for our food pantry assistance is growing! We are encouraging all who are able to please donate food or personal care items to the food pantry. Donations may be left inside (side door entrance) the Outreach Center at 35 Main Street, Blairstown, NJ — however, please email or call ahead to see if the building is open as office operating hours may vary at this time. Financial contributions to the First Presbyterian Church Outreach Center Pantry are always welcome and may be mailed to P.O. Box 385, Blairstown or may also be donated online.

Nonperishable pantry contributions may also be left at the Blairstown Township Municipal Building parking lot between 8 AM – 8 PM. The Blairstown Office of Emergency Management has a shed available to leave nonperishable items. All items collected are distributed to the pantries serving the Northern Warren area. If you are unable to donate any food items, please consider a monetary donation so items that are needed can be bought. Make all checks out to: First United Methodist Church of Blairstown, 10 Stillwater Road, Blairstown, NJ 07825 Memo: OEM Food Drive
This money will be divided up between the pantries as well. Your continued support is needed now more then ever. PPE can be donated as well and will be distributed to the First Responders in the area.

Thank you to all who contribute!!

For those who need food pantry assistance, WE ARE OPEN! As always, we will be open the third Saturday of the month from 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM. What has changed is how we will distribute the food. Patrons may complete an order form that will be available by the front door. After completing the necessary information on the form, you will be invited to wait in your car while your order is filled. A volunteer will then bring the bags of food to your car. Guests will not be able to enter the Outreach Center during this time.
