      Fill the Gap, Feed a NJ Family!

      nyone Anywhere Can Participate! You and your family can help hungry families in New Jersey. The Covid-19 health crisis has impacted many of our New Jersey communities including with loss of jobs and income. Help contribute in one of the following ways:

      1. Sign up and sponsor by “Paying for a Meal” to feed a family of five (5) from one of several restaurants we’ve listed for $45.00. Alfonso's Pizzeria (609-924-8351), Beniamino's Cucina (609-252-0030), or Genteel's Brick Oven Pizza (609-252-0880). Please call-in/pay and mention that you are placing the order for "Fill in The Gap" no later than the Wednesday before your chosen Saturday. Our team will pick up the meals; all you need to do is call-in and pay the business directly. (Below, when signing up, select a number for the meal (s) you are paying and in the comment section, please write, Paying for Meal.)

      2. Sign up and "Prepare a Meal" to feed a family of five (5). A meal consists of one tray of an entree (suggestions include pasta/baked ziti, a chicken entree of your choice, or sausage & peppers), one tray of a vegetable (suggestion of either a garden or a Caesar salad with dressing), and rolls/bread. All meals should be in disposable, covered, aluminum trays. These meals should be dropped off between 9 and 9:30 am on your chosen Saturday morning in the parking lot of the Harlingen Reformed Church on Route 206 in Belle Mead. *Please note, on the dates that we are distributing meals in Montgomery, meals should be dropped off between 9:30 and 10 am. RAIN or SHINE. (Below, when signing up, select a number for the meal (s) you are preparing, and in the comment section, please write, Preparing A Meal.)

      3. Volunteer as a Saturday morning DRIVER or HELPER: If you would like to volunteer your time, please sign up! We are asking for six (6) volunteers each Saturday. On the dates when the meals will be distributed right here in Montgomery, you will be needed at Harlingen Reformed Church in Belle Mead from 9:30 am-11:30 am to help collect meals that are being dropped off and put those meals into the vehicles of the families in need (no driving necessary). On the dates when the meals will be distributed in Jamesburg or Trenton, you will be needed to meet the team at Harlingen Reformed Church just before 9:00 am. We will receive meals that are being dropped off, pack the meals in our vehicles, drive to either the Calvary Chapel Crossfields church in Jamesburg or the Trenton 9th Grade Academy and unload the meals into the vehicles of the families in need. We anticipate a 3.5-hour commitment for drivers: loading meals, driving to Jamesburg or Trenton, unpacking into vehicles and returning to Montgomery. Please check the SignUp Genius to see which location we are distributing the meals each week (listed under "Location").

      4. Donate ANY AMOUNT to purchase meals via Calvary Chapel Crossfields (SecureGive)

      https://app.securegive.com/cccrossfields/fill-in-the-gap or via Venmo @James-Moore-809

      All our efforts are being planned with SOCIAL DISTANCING in mind, so please wear your mask when dropping off food and volunteering as a driver. Families in need will simply drive up, pop their trunk, and one of our volunteers will put the donated meal into their vehicle.

      Thank you for your support!
