The Numbers Continue to Grow.

9 weeks

8,000 weekend emergency food bags

125,000 meals

1,400 contributors

193 volunteers

On Friday, May 15, 2020, Mercer Street Friends distributed 2,170 weekend emergency food bags to individuals and families throughout Trenton and Mercer County. Our volunteers are starting to recognize the faces, week after week. Our staff greet some families by name. The need within our community increases.

We remain grateful to all who continue to provide volunteer and financial support to Mercer Street Friends. Every bag offered is a bag underwritten by those who have made and continue to make gifts that will feed our neighbors and their families.

Mercer Street Friends has received tremendous support from over 1,400 donors in the past two months and we are grateful to each one. Every Friday, we look forward to highlighting groups of individuals, families, businesses and foundations who have provided contributions, ensuring that all who have invested in Mercer Street Friends know their gifts have had an incredible impact on our community.
