We have been involved with Nourish New Jersey, formerly called the Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center in Morristown, for over 35 years. This organization serves many people who are in various states of being, some who are income challenged, some who are without permanent homes, and others who are just appreciative of the many services we offer our guests. We help with fresh and frozen meals, fresh market shopping, medical care and mental health services, Job counseling, housing services, and myriad problem-solving challenges. Our staff has been indefatigable and amazingly creative, all throughout COVID. This summer we ran a at- home summer camp! Jane serves on the Board, and David and Jane are both certified kitchen-trained  and sometimes we serve food to our guests( not just right now). Right now we are cheerleaders! Please help if you are able!

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. 

L
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.
