“...providing help - creating hope…”


The Father English Emergency Food Pantry and Clothing “Boutique” are located at 435 Mail Street in Paterson, New Jersey. The emergency Food Pantry was started in 1988 and it works in cooperation with the Emergency Food Coalition which refers potential clients.  Eligible clients may access the available resources from the food pantry once a month.  Emergency food donations and the availability of food in stock dictate how many clients can be served on a monthly basis.  At present this program provides food to 650 people a month.

Source of funding include:  the County of Passaic Community emergency Assistance, in-kind space and resources, and donations made privately and through parishes.

The Emergency Food Pantry’s hours of service are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.  Potential clients who come for assistance after the pantry closes at 1:00 p.m. are not turned away.  The office remains open until 5:00 p.m. to distribute “over-night bags” to people in need who may return the next day and obtain a referral from the Emergency Food Coalition.

The Father English Emergency Clothing “Boutique” was started in 1994 with the purpose of providing people in need with clean, seasonally appropriate clothing.   The emergency Clothing “Boutique” works in combination with, and as an outgrowth of, the Emergency Food Pantry.  These two programs share a fundamental understanding that nutritious food and clean clothing are things no one should be denied.

Donations are currently being accepted through different parishes whose generosity has enabled the Emergency Clothing “Boutique” to serve over 200 people a month.

The Emergency Clothing “Boutique” operates from 9”30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. – Monday thru Thursday.  The office remains open until 5:00 p.m. to assist anyone in need.
