Sèvis manje

Jefferson Park Ministries Food Pantry (JPMFP) is committed to improving the quality of life and to promote the health of low income persons and/or their families.

Low income, struggling, and working families can get free food at the Jefferson Park Ministries, Inc. Food Pantry (JPMFP). JPMFP provides free groceries, diapers, as well as hygiene supplies to those who need help. A number of other assistance programs and supports are offered. It also distributes baby food, clothing, diapers, or guidance on applying for SNAP food stamps. 

JPM works with the Community Food Bank of NJ (CFBNJ) to reach people in need across the state. CFBNJ helps JPM get healthy food to hungry men, women, and children in the communities through its food pantry. 

Furthermore, JPM partners with CFBNJ and is trained to connect its clients to SNAP benefits.  The partnership helps to engage clients and assess client’s food needs to reduce barriers to accessing food assistance, facilitate the CFBNJ screening JPM clients over the phone for SNAP, and providing online application assistance for those that are eligible.

“More than 1.2 million people in New Jersey face hunger every day. Nearly 400,000 of them are children. When they don’t have enough food to eat, they can suffer direct and dramatic effects on their physical development and mental well-being”.

Food insecurity exists in every county across the United States, from the poorest neighborhoods to the most affluent. Parents skip meals so they can feed their children, seniors choose between buying medicine and food, and students decide between their education and food. These tough choices are an unfortunate reality for many of our New Jersey neighbors.” Community Food of NJ Period Initiative 

We all know plenty of people that have a period. But not everyone knows that one in four people struggle to purchase period supplies due to lack of income. This is called period poverty, and chances are we each know someone who has experienced this need — a neighbor, a coworker, a friend. No student should have to miss school, no adult should have to miss work, and no person should have to miss out on daily life because they are unable to afford the supplies they need, said Alliance for Period Supplies. 

1 in 4 American women do not have consistent access to menstrual products. An allied program of the National Diaper Bank Network’s Alliance for Period Supplies, the Period Initiative, provides free period products every month to women in need, said CFBNJ. JPM partners with CFBNJ to distribute periods pads to all women. Period pad distribution is on every 2nd Thursday of the month.

“Times are hard, and hygiene products are so expensive in the store. The Period Initiative helps me get through the month”. – Frankie Period Program

Programs can be made up of informal sessions that focus on conversation, or they can include structured courses that focus on written and oral proficiency. ESL classes are typically offered in the morning or evening for adult students
  • Beginner ESL – Beginner classes are for those who speak little or no English. These classes focus on basic conversational English speaking and reading skills needed for survival. Vocabulary lessons might cover words needed for routine activities, such as catching a bus, renting an apartment, finding a job and cashing a paycheck. Adults who complete a beginner program can move up to intermediate programs, which include instruction in English grammar and reading.
  • Intermediate – Intermediate programs are designed for adults who have good speaking skills, but who may need help with reading and writing in English. These programs prepare adult students for career training to enter the workforce or to move on to advanced English programs that can prepare them for college courses.

  • Life skill program- Life skills are important and are necessary for us to survive.  They are what we use to advance through our lives.  They are gained and developed as we grow and age through the experiencing of trials and struggles.
