About Us

Mission Statement:
The St. Francis of Assisi Food Pantry’s mission is to win the fight against hunger within our parish community by providing much needed non-perishable food items to those in need.

We are committed to serving the needs of all members of our community regardless of race, color, religion, or age with dignity and respect. We are simply a parish family helping families who are struggling through these hard economic times by providing them with much needed food items.

A small church pantry was started over 25 years ago to provide food to several families within our parish. Through the years that followed, the Food Pantry grew and expanded to serve not only St. Francis of Assisi parishioners but the entire community of Ridgefield Park. In January 2014, a fully operational volunteer run Food Pantry exists, supplying supplemental non-perishable food items to approximately 85 families on a bi-weekly basis. Our current client list provides much needed food to an estimated 450 men, women and children each month. We consider ourselves a small food pantry helping to feed families of our parish community who come to our door for assistance.
