PARSIPPANY — Advance Auto Parts, 1500 Route 46, during the Grand Opening celebration, donated $1,000 to Interfaith Food Pantry, Parsippany.

The Interfaith Food Pantry is a community of neighbors helping neighbors committed to ending hunger and supporting self-sufficiency. Through their community partners they provide food, education and resources to inspire confidence and hope to Morris County families in need.

Interfaith Food Pantry was established in 1994 when a group from local houses of worship decided to address the growing issue of hunger by consolidating their food assistance programs.

There was a growing awareness that there were many families, especially senior citizens, who needed assistance in securing food and for longer periods of time than was currently offered. It was also noted that a centralized location was necessary, since many of those in need did not have transportation.

The group decided to consolidate their programs and work together out of one central distribution center in Morristown. They then reached out to seek the community’s help in maintaining and staffing the project.
The Interfaith Food Pantry is a non-denominational, non-profit 501 (C) (3) organization helping families make ends meet by supplementing their monthly groceries in times of need.
