MSF Expands Emergency Food Bags Distribution

WE WERE THERE FOR OUR FAMILIES, BECAUSE YOU WERE THERE FOR OUR FAMILIES 

On Friday, March 27, 2020, Mercer Street Friends staff and volunteers were stationed at six locations throughout Trenton to distribute emergency meal bags to families in need. Since last Friday, we have seen an uptick of people in line – from 460 on Friday, March 20th to today’s 975. In anticipation of weekly increases, we continue to prepare reserve bags for each location.  

We heard from a father who said that “the food really helps a lot for my family, otherwise me, my wife and three children would not be able to eat.”   

YOU offered your support and because of that, his family, as well as hundreds of others in Trenton, are fed this weekend. 

Our work is far from over. In fact, we are acutely aware that it is just beginning. 

Please know that we remain grateful to all who have offered their time to volunteer, to all who have sent gifts, and to all who have emailed us and offered good wishes as we respond to our community and its needs.
