So much has been happening with St. Paul’s Food Pantry these past few months.

Our food pantry has been blessed to have received three grants this year!

  • The New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund awarded us $25,000.
  • The David Tepper Charitable Trust Foundation awarded us $10,000.
  • Wakefern’s 2021 Partners in Caring grant gave us $2,000.

These grants have enabled us to purchase new refrigerators and freezers for food storage, a computer and tablet for doing the intakes, canopies for food distributions and food for distributing to those in need.

We also received $250.00 from the West Deptford Woman’s Club.

In the coming months we are looking to purchase shelving for food storage, signs for the pantry and keeping the pantry stocked with plenty of food.

If you know of someone in need of food, please have them reach out to me by calling the church phone at 856-845-6638 or email me at
