Together we can help our neighbors in need of food, shelter and outreach services. Thank you!

Campaign has ended


Nourish.NJ opened in 1984 as the Community Soup Kitchen & Outreach Center serving peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and chicken soup to four guests. Since then, we have NEVER closed our doors or missed a day of serving those in need. Not in hurricanes, blizzards, floods or COVID-19!

We’ve served countless meals; re-distributed hundreds of thousands of pounds of fresh, healthy produce; helped guests find jobs, secure housing and reconnect with loved ones. Despite many changes over the years, one thing that’s remained constant is our passion for what we do.

No one could ever have imagined a challenge like the one facing us all right now with COVID-19. We made a promise to always meet the needs of our guests, and your partnership will strengthened that promise and have a lasting impact, especially in the face of COVID-19.

Thank you!

The Hunger Walk is one of our biggest fundraisers, and this year, we need your support more than ever before.

The Hunger Walk raises funds for and increases awareness about issues of poverty and hunger in our community. In previous years, participants completed a 5K pledge walk through Morristown, following along with guests' stories and experiences to gain a better understanding of what it means to walk in their shoes. This year, nourish.NJ has opted for a virtual event. However, just because we can’t gather doesn’t mean we can’t have fun! 

One of the special parts of the Hunger Walk is sharing our guests’ stories with the rest of our community. For Hunger Walk 2020, participants will follow along with guest stories through an audio tour, narrated by nourish.NJ’s staff. Instead of having a single-day event, participants may fundraise and complete the walk any time between October 1-18. You will be able to complete your walk wherever you are, whether that’s through downtown Morristown, around your own neighborhood, or anywhere else! A digital story map will also showcase significant locations throughout Morristown, so you can follow along the route no matter where you are. 

ong and short-sleeve shirts are available for purchase
at this link.

All registrants will receive emails with links to the audio tour and digital story map starting October 1.

Participants can still build their own fundraising teams, from the safety of their own home.


  • Create a Fundraiser Page by clicking the Create or Join a Team button. You can register as an individual fundraiser, or join a pre-existing fundraising team. 
  • Fundraising teams are listed in a drop-down menu by their Team Captain's name–the person who created the Fundraiser Page.
  • If you are creating a Fundraiser team page but do not want your name to appear in the drop-down menu, enter the name of your team in the text boxes on the sign-up page. (Example: If your team name is "Smith Family," enter "Smith" in the First Name box and "Family" in the Last Name box.) 
  • Make sure to select the fundraiser you want to support when registering.
