Pantry volunteers may be responsible for:

Donate Your McCaffrey’s Receipts to Arm In Arm
Looking for an easy way to support Arm In Arm’s mission?

If you shop at McCaffrey’s Markets in Princeton or West Windsor, then you’re already halfway there! 

After shopping, please mail or deliver your grocery receipts to the Arm In Arm food pantry at 61 Nassau Street, Princeton NJ 08542. The pantry is in the basement of Nassau Presbyterian Church. 

*** Please, be sure receipts are dated within the past 3 months *** 

Once per month, all of the donated receipts are tallied by our volunteers, and McCaffrey’s generously donates 1% of all receipts to Arm In Arm, resulting in important financial support for our Hunger Prevention program.
