Food Pantry Donations


The Plainsboro Food Pantry currently provides food to over 30 families in our community. We are funded through a government grant and obtain food and monetary donations from corporations, community groups, and individuals. Our recipients apply and receive non-perishable food items twice each month. They are accepted as recipients based on income level and need. We are located on the plaza level of the Plainsboro Municipal Building. You can help by donating unexpired food or cash to our pantry. Look for the bins located in the Municipal Building and Recreation and Cultural Center

Donations are greatly appreciated. The Food Pantry accepts a variety of personal care items, as well as, grocery and non-perishable items. View our complete list of accepted items below. If you are interested in becoming a Food Pantry volunteer or if you need further assistance, please email Food Pantry Coordinator Maria Benerofe or Food Pantry Clerk Erum Ladak or call 609-799-0909 ext. 1711.
