In a partnership between Rest Wood Crafts, the Maple Shade Food Bank, the MSPCA, the Police Chaplain Corp, the Police Department, PBA Local #267, the Township of Maple Shade, Maple Shade Public Works, Teamsters Local 676, the Maple Shade Business Association and Rotary International, we are proud to announce that the Grab N Go Food Box is live and operational. The food box is located inside the lobby of the Police Department adjacent to the Municipal Building located at 200 Stiles Avenue in Maple Shade. The box contains bags of free groceries for those who are experiencing hunger or food insecurity issues. We ask that the public please take only one bag of free groceries to fill their immediate need as we care for not only you, but others as well.
If an additional need exists beyond this, here are several options you can explore. First, you can contact the Volunteers of America – IMPACT Program at #856-298-7741 who are based out of the Maple Shade Police Department. They can help you navigate through issues such as this as well as other challenges you may be experiencing. Second, you can visit the Maple Shade Food Bank on the first and third Wednesday of the month or you can visit NJ Snap at https://www.nj.gov/humanservices/njsnap/ for further assistance.
We are hopeful that this initiative will help to stamp out hunger and is another example of Shaders helping Shaders in need!
