Here are some of our supporting partners who help us meet our mission...
Faith Lutheran Church in New Providence supports our food pantry with a very needed delivery of pantry items every Thanksgiving weekend. Their valuable donations replenish supplies that have left our shelves nearly bare. We are most grateful to the members of the church for their loyal and unfailing generosity.
St. Andrews Episcopal Church in New Providence is another generous supplier of food for our Pantry, including frozen turkeys for our Thanksgiving Dinner Program.
U.S. Postal Service also supports our food pantry with needed pantry items after their annual "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive in May. This is particularly timely, bringing in food as the pantry supplies from Thanksgiving season begin to dwindle.
Rotary Club of Plainfield-North Plainfield supports our holiday dinner program and helps provide needed pantry items throughout the year. The Rotarians also grow fresh vegetables in the summer and donate them to Star Fish.
The Giving Garden at the Wagner Farm Arboretum provides us with hundreds of pounds of fresh vegetables and fruit from summer through fall every year.
The Community Food Bank of NJ in Hillside provides us with many of the foodstuffs we need at a reduced cost, resulting in savings that helps us stretch our limited budget.
The Plainfield Public Library accepted "food for fines" during a designated period in 2013 and donated that food to our food pantry.
College Achieve Charter School in Plainfield and North Plainfield became a contributor in 2016 with donations at Thanksgiving time.
