New Community Emergency Food Pantry
220 Bruce Street
Newark, NJ 07103

New Community Corporation operates an emergency food pantry starting the first business day after the 15th of every month to aid individuals and families who are in need of food supplies. In addition to canned goods, the pantry also provides items such as rice, cereal and even frozen, whole chickens.

The food pantry requires:
– A valid NJ ID and/or proof of residency
– Proof of income (employment, unemployment, Social Security award letter, etc.)
– Birth certificate for each child under the age of 18

Food is distributed out of the Resident Services office, located at 220 Bruce St., Newark, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. while supplies last.

There is also a Community Food Distribution that occurs at the same location on the first Tuesday of every month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. while supplies last. For that distribution, recipients just need to sign for the items received.

To participate in all food distributions, individuals should bring their own bags and/or carts.
