Welcome to the

Princeton Mobile Food Pantry


What We Do

The Princeton Mobile Food Pantry, a grassroots organization that has operated in various forms since 2010, was formally established in 2017 in partnership with Mercer Street Friends Food Bank. Most recently we offered a weekly pickup at the Henry Pannell Learning Center, providing weekly groceries and essentials to over 300 people. Under COVID-19, we became independent and mobile, changed our name to the Princeton Mobile Food Pantry, and shifted to biweekly deliveries of groceries and monetary support to families and individuals, who now number well over 400. The people we serve experience food insecurity, and range in age, race, identity, background, and mobility. We are a volunteer-led collective supporting our neighbors through various networks.

Our Community

"People who live in difficult circumstances need to know that happy endings are possible."

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Princeton University, '76

Some of our team members have known the people that it serves for many years, forging strong bonds of trust and understanding. These families and individuals are hardworking people juggling parenting, multiple jobs, health concerns, and costly Princeton rents, all of which are compounded by food insecurity. Our priority is to respectfully provide nourishment and support, a kind word, and the makings for a homecooked meal.
