Serving Our Meals

Our Volunteers

Meals With A Mission is a nonsectarian, nonprofit organization founded in December 2010.  We are committed to serving the ever-increasing number of hungry men, women and children in our communities. We prepare and distribute meals to 25 established agencies in Hudson, Essex, Bergen, and Passaic County.

Our Unique Concept

Funding

Our very existence relies completely on the generosity of our benefactors who are our “partners” in caring for struggling families, seniors, veterans, and homeless and homebound individuals. Although we are volunteer based and most of our food supply is donated, we need financial assistance to meet our basic expenses, including overhead, supplemental food, and costly packaging supplies. We never hesitate to ask for help to feed the hungry in our communities.  Please click here to go to our "Donate" page to learn how you can help.

​​MISSION STATEMENT:  FEEDING THE HUNGRY WITH DIGNITY AND COMPASSION

​Our highly motivated and dedicated volunteers are the foundation of our organization.  They come from all walks of life with one common goal....to feed the hungry.  The volunteers are assigned to teams who meet at our Garfield, NJ facility once a month to prepare nutritious meals worthy of their own dining tables.
