|SPCDC Food Pantry & SPCDC Men's Shelter||Food Pantries, Shelters||PASSAIC||
The purpose of the SPCDC Food Pantry is to provide supplemental food assistance to individuals and families who are unable to financially meet their daily nutritional requirements. Our ultimate goal is to develop self-sufficiency in our clients, and our food assistance program is intended as a "hand-up," not a "handout" in helping individuals and families achieve greater stability in their lives.
Clients who demonstrate need receive emergency grocery packages each containing an equivalent of 15 meals. We also distribute over 400 turkeys in November during our Thanksgiving Holiday Drive.
The St. Paul's Community Development Corporation (SPCDC) Emergency Men's Shelter provides emergency housing, clothing and food to as many as 40 homeless men per night. Our Shelter staff work to make each resident's stay as brief and helpful as possible by providing referrals for housing, employment, mental health and rehabilitation services.
