Volunteer in our Trenton Pantry

48 Hudson Street Trenton, NJ  : Street parking is available for volunteers to park. 

Pantry volunteers may be responsible for:

  • unloading and shelving donations
  • packaging groceries for distribution and home deliveries
  • delivering groceries to our mobility challenged and older neighbors.

We want to take a moment to thank all of our dedicated and passionate volunteers. It takes a village, and you are a critical part of the AIA village.

*If you are a new volunteer, please download this New Volunteer Agreement, and fill it out and either email it to shariqm@arminarm.org prior to coming into the pantry or bring a physical copy with you when you come into the pantry. Thank you. 

*Food pantry volunteers ages 8 to 15 must be accompanied by an adult while volunteering at our 3 sites. If volunteers are over the age of 16 they do not need to be accompanied by an adult. 

Volunteer in our Garden

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.
