Who We Serve 

  • Many Mercer County neighbors turn to Arm In Arm’s Hunger Prevention program for support in difficult times. When faced with food insecurity, low-income people from up to 5,000  households are served through our food pantries and mobile pantry each month.
  • Teams of volunteers deliver food to the homes of 150 elderly and house bound people in Trenton and Princeton each month.
  • 40 percent of the people helped in our Hunger Prevention program are 17 and under; 25 percent are age 55 and above.

What We Provide

Healthy Food – Together, our food pantries average 4,000 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:

  • Hands-on learning opportunities for children’s groups
  • Distribution of budget-focused cookbooks for our senior customers
  • On-site healthy cooking demonstrations and tastings
  • Visits from nutrition educators from Rutgers Extension Services

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.
