By getting involved in our Purple Apron Meal Kit Program, you can make life a little easier for local families experiencing hunger, homelessness and/or poverty. Your kindness and generosity will help families gather around the table for a meal at home.


Participants will use one of our nourish.NJ recipes, updated every two months, to shop for and package all ingredients needed for a simple yet nutritious and tasty dinner. Don't forget to add a dash of love along with a copy of our recipe. You can even top off the meal kit with a personalized note. Follow the steps below to get started:

Step 1: Choose from two of these delicious recipes.

Step 2: Sign up for the Purple Apron Meal Kit Program.

Step 3: Shop for the ingredients listed below for each meal kit. 

 *Note: Some quantities are just a bit larger than needed for the recipe to help to "build" our guests' pantries. Sealed items only please. 

Step 4: Package ingredients for each kit in a separate shopping bag.

Step 5: Staple a copy of our recipe in Spanish and English on the outside of the bag.

Step 6: Add a dash of love! Write a personal note for the family.
