nourish.NJ recently celebrated the inauguration of our latest facility with a
ribbon-cutting ceremony at 347 South Salem Street in Victory Gardens.
The new facility is an 8,000-square-foot location aimed at addressing food insecurity by providing fresh food, stable housing, and critical mental health support. A community hub offering a variety of services to assist with case management, financial stability, mental health, and more, in one of the most densely populated and impoverished municipalities in New Jersey.
For nearly 40 years, nourish.NJ has constantly adapted to create dynamic,
lasting solutions to the problems of hunger, homelessness, and poverty in Morris County. Formerly known as the Community Soup Kitchen, the Morristown-native organization operates 365 days a year, offering supportive services and carrying out its mission with the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion at the heart of its work. nourish.NJ’s unique approach to fostering and maintaining an environment that is accepting, affirming, and empowering to all who engage with their organization sets them apart and enables their ability to offer maximum assistance.
The last three years in particular have served as a time of dramatic growth and
transformation for nourish.NJ. Consequently, our geographic and programmatic reach, as well as our community impact, have increased significantly, culminating with the grand opening of their new Community Hub on South Salem Street in Victory Gardens.
This additional location features a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, which
will help the organization serve thousands more healthy, freshly prepared
meals. Additionally, new office spaces for their Outreach Team will enable the
offering of free, easily accessible case-management services for housing,
mental and physical health, and financial stability support.
