The Rise Food Pantry Schedule Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday 9:00am - 12:00pm 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month 5:00pm - 7:00pm
The "Green House" with its big front porch is convenient for the families that Rise serves and provides the needed space to distribute and store the food.
The Rise Food Pantry is stocked with food that comes from community schools, local businesses, and Mercer St. Friends Food Bank.
The outpouring of generosity from the community helps to keep the pantry shelves stocked throughout the year. In 2014, a record 642 families were served by the Rise Food Pantry an increase from 578 in 2013 families, 511 in 2012, and 465 in 2011. In 2014, almost 2200 people were served, of which 963 were children.
In addition to food, organizations conduct collections for baby food, formula and supplies, personal care items, as well as school supplies at various times of the year.
In 2014, we gave 439 bags of baby items to low-income children. We were able to supply 261 packages of food to low -income pet owners as well.
Throughout the year, clients have access to full-time Rise Case Managers at the main office, from 9 AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday, to obtain case management services for their entire family. Emergency food packages are stored in the Rise office for walk-in clients who need assistance outside of the regular Rise Food Pantry operating hours.
In addition, the Greater Goods Thrift Stores in Hightstown serve as a collection point and distribution point for food and a variety of items which are readily available to struggling families.
