Food Pantry

Our mission at Holy Name of Jesus for the EMA food pantry is to model the love and compassion of Christ by providing groceries (food and non-food) for the hungry and needy people of the Edgewood School District.

We do not have regular meeting times, but Holy Name provides volunteers for the food pantry on Wednesdays and Fridays.

EMA food pantry holds several food drives and fundraisers throughout the year. Please watch the bulletins for more information.

Holy Name has several opportunities to support the EMA food pantry with donations and collections. In October the Youth Group goes door to door during in Trenton collecting food and nonperishable food items. In June Holy Name sponsors a Fr. Klein Memorial 5k Run/walk at the Trenton Community Park and all proceeds go to the EMA and LEAF program.
