Food Pantry

St. Joseph Church has provided a food pantry for well over 20 years to help people who are suffering from food insecurity as a result of illness, disabilities, or unemployment.

We are able to stock our shelves thanks to the generous donations we receive from our parishioners.

How Do I Sign Up?

If you need food assistance, please pick up an application from the Rectory Office (115 East Fort Lee Rd, Bogota, NJ) during normal business hours (scroll down to the bottom of this page). We are here to help our registered parishioners and neighbors in Bogota and Teaneck.
