I Need Food Assistance
With the current COVID-19 pandemic affecting everyone, it is important we as an organization take precautions. That’s why we’re doing our part to modify services, lower exposure, and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please note our locations in Princeton and Trenton have modified their services.
Beginning July 13th, Arm In Arm will serve clients through pick-up at our three pantry locations while continuing to deliver to community members who are home-bound or immuno-compromised.
Tuesday and Thursday, 9:30AM-1PM
123 East Hanover Street, Trenton
Monday and Wednesday, 9:30-1PM
Monday and Wednesday, 11AM- 4PM.
Who We Serve:
What We Provide:
Healthy Food – Together, our food pantries average 2,000 shopping visits each month. The variety of heart-healthy food filling our shelves and refrigerators includes fresh produce, eggs and milk, frozen proteins, quality baked goods, and prepared foods such as yogurts, salads and soups, and many shelf-stable canned and boxed food. Personal care products such as shampoo, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes, diapers, and deodorant are often available.
Healthy Living & Nutrition Education — linking better nutrition with improved health through:
Community Garden Produce —Dedicated volunteers cultivate and harvest fresh produce in our Hanover Garden in downtown Trenton. All produce grown in our garden is harvested and distributed in our pantry. We grow tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, kale, collard and mustard greens, cucumbers, squash, herbs, and more.
Home Food Delivery — We deliver food once a month to homebound seniors and adults with disabilities.
Health Screenings — In partnership with Capital Health System’s Community Health Program and First Presbyterian Church of Trenton, we offer information and health screenings to our clients to detect hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, and other conditions. Attendees are offered a healthy lunch while they learn.
Referrals For Home Food Delivery:
Arm In Arm is accepting referrals from partner organizations for free pantry food delivery to low-income Mercer County community members who are homebound or quarantine. Please use the link below to enter information for all referrals. We will call the household on the day before the delivery to confirm that they will be there to receive. We cannot leave food if no one is home. Currently, we are making deliveries 2 to 3 days a week between 10:00am and 2:00pm.
