Remember that hunger does not take a vacation during the summer months. Please continue your support of the Food Bank in all seasons. During the summer months families with school aged children will need more support for lunches, which the children receive at school during the school year. Peanut butter, jelly, individual fruit cups, juice boxes and healthy snacks are especially appreciated.
The Nutley Family Service Bureau provides not only services for food insecurity, but also Mental Health services, teen leadership programs, child social skills workshops and Men's support groups. The NFSB also runs a Thrift shop which appreciates both donations and shoppers! To find out
