Our food pantries are open on the usual days and times. However, we are being very cautious about not spreading the virus. Clients will be served one at a time. We are not conducting our regular interviews. Clients will be given a standard assortment of grocery items according to the size of the family, and must wait outside the building. We are limiting the number of volunteers each day, but our revised process moves quickly. Donations are especially needed at this time when stores are limiting quantity buying. Non-perishable food (and checks) will be accepted, but must be handed off at the door.
Be patient. Trust that God will see us all through these difficult times. Continue to help each other. Be wise and follow the guidelines for safe living.
Special Request: Donations of laundry detergent etc.
Ongoing Requests: Cereal - hot or cold, Pancake Mix, Syrup, Canned Tuna or Chicken, Spaghetti, Spaghetti Sauce, Canned Fruit, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Hearty Soups, Tea Bags, Coffee
Drop off any Tue or Thur

Organized among various churches in Woodbury, New Jersey, the Greater Woodbury Cooperative Ministries, Inc. (GWCM ) was founded by clergy and lay leaders to cooperate in local social ministries beyond the resources of any one of our faith communities.
We are an all-volunteer, IRS 501(c)(3) recognized not-for-profit charity, serving the City of Woodbury and the immediate surrounding NJ communities.
GWCM's food pantries are intended as emergency relief services, providing, in addition to food, guidance to clients in accessing the support of government and community assistance.
In addition to the food pantries, the GWCM has been involved in a number of other community projects over the years including ecumenical worship services, Vacation Bible School, a high school Peace Essay Scholarship, a clothing closet, our children's summer lunch box program, and a Handy Helpers program to assist seniors and the disabled with household chores.
Tuesday and Thursday - 9:30-11:00 am
