We are excited to express gratitude and celebrate by honoring Notre Dame Church, North Caldwell; Prospect Presbyterian Church, Maplewood; Victor Nichols, DMC Publishing; and Patrick O’Neill, AmpYourGood for their invaluable support of Meeting Emergency Needs with Dignity.  

Since 1980, more than 1.7 million Essex County neighbors have passed through MEND’s doors to feed their families.  In 2016, MEND pantries served approximately 107,000 individuals, a 32% increase over the past five years, despite two pantry closures during that time.
