As We Begin the Long Weekend…

We give thanks to all who have remained a partner in Mercer Street Friends’ work to provide weekend meals to those who stand in line, for the first time or for the fifteenth time. Food insecurity was prevalent throughout our community – Trenton and Mercer County – before the COVID-19 pandemic. Food insecurity remains prevalent today. While we recognize that we cannot immediately solve a problem that runs so deep, it is important for our neighbors to know that they are not alone in this struggle.

On Thursday, July 2, 2020, Mercer Street Friends staff, in partnership with our weekly volunteers as well as Omega Psi Phi Fraternity distributed 1,480 Community Food Bags to our neighbors in Trenton and Mercer County.

Mercer Street Friends has received tremendous support from over 2,700 donors since March 16, 2020. 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.
