Randolph Township Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department Food Pantry
Due to the impact of COVID-19, we are anticipating increased needs in the coming weeks and months. Non-perishable items are always needed as well as paper products, dish detergent and other cleaners; please be sure to check expiration dates on items.
To meet the need created by the current crisis, the pantry is also accepting financial donations as well as store gift cards that will be used by township staff to purchase perishable items which would not normally be available in our pantry.
There is a donation bin in the foyer of the community center at 30 Calais Road. This bin is for food and grocery items, not financial contributions or gift cards. Donations should only be left during office hours, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday. Please call 973.989.7084 with questions.
Residents requiring food assistance are encouraged to call 973.989.7084 during the hours listed above. Staff members will try to accommodate requests; items will be bagged and available on a scheduled basis for those in need to either pick up from the community center or to have delivered by a volunteer.
