nourish.NJ (formerly Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center Inc.)
nourish.NJ , formerly named Community Soup Kitchen & Outreach Center is a multi-service organization dedicated to ending hunger, homelessness and poverty in our community. Food is the starting point of our engagement with the marginalized communities we serve, but our work goes far beyond food. 365 days a year we serve breakfast and lunch to 200 - 250 people, or 75,000 meals annually, and we distribute 500,000 pounds of fresh and healthy foods through our free farmer’s markets. From the relationships we form over these meal through our free farmers market is to feed the homeless and working poor of the Morris County area and to provide our guests with access to social services, employment counseling, substance abuse and mental health treatment and medical care.
The agency’s mission is simple: to empower lives, invite justice, and alleviate hunger. We do this by providing training, education, and social services (empowering lives,) opportunities for community service (inviting justice,) and nutritious meals (alleviating hunger.)
