About the Hoboken Food Pantry

Nearly 25% of the residents in the low income housing program supported by the Hoboken Community Center are senior citizens, many are veterans, and a majority are also part of a vulnerable group who are “food insecure.” In 2019, the Hoboken Community Center opened a small food pantry to provide essential needs such as food and personal hygiene supplies not only to its residents, but to anyone else in the community who experiences food insecurity.

Some desired food items include:

  • peanut butter
  • jelly
  • crackers
  • canned sloppy joe
  • canned chili
  • canned tuna
  • canned vegetables
  • spaghettiOs
  • Ramen noodle cups
  • cereal
  • instant oatmeal
  • shelf stable milk
