Deacon Ministry & Food Pantry

food pantry, blairstown

For those who need food pantry assistance, we are open the third Saturday of the month from 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM.

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

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 —office hours are 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM—however, these hours are usually longer. 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 police department parking lot (behind the municipal building). Thank you everyone for the continued support as the need is greater than ever. Collection hours remain between 8 AM – 5 PM 7 days a week. The Blairstown Office of Emergency Management has provided this shed 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.

Thank you to all who contribute!!
