About TOUCH New Jersey
TOUCH New Jersey coordinates and administers an all-volunteer food Pantry which is based in the New Beginnings Church at 549 State Street in Camden, NJ. The pantry is open each Wednesday for 4 hours, allowing low-income, elderly and disabled residents to “shop” for fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, dairy, bread and other food staples. TOUCH’s operations are staffed by volunteers, currently “rescuing” and distributing an average of 10,000 pounds of food per week.
As a certified agency with Philabundance, TOUCH New Jersey receives foodstuffs from ACME supermarkets throughout South Jersey in Willingboro, Moorestown, Maple Shade and Pennsville as well as the Walmart in Williamstown and the Philabundance Produce Hub in South Philadelphia.
For the past six months, TOUCH has picked up nutritious fruits and vegetables from Jewish Family & Children’s Service in Cherry Hill. This produce supply nicely complements our menu on Wednesdays.
So TOUCH now distributes foods and/or personal services to the following agencies “in addition” to the 150 shopping families at its pantry each week.
