Food Justice

Mission

We strive to help meet the immediate needs of hunger in Asbury Park and to organize within our community to prevent hunger and injustice in the future.

 

Vision

We want to see an Asbury Park that is dedicated to racial, economic, sexuality, gender, and environmental justice so that all its community members are empowered, have good affordable housing, healthy food, high quality educations, and good jobs. The realization of these visions will end hunger.

 

We have a three-pronged system at Food Justice at Trinity.

  1. We ask why people are hungry?   (Answers, systemic racism and unjust economic systems)
  2. We meet the immediate needs of hunger with our pantry and community meal.
  3. We organize in our community to end future hunger and injustice.

 

Meeting the Immediate Needs of Hunger

Trinity’s Food Pantry and Saturday Soup kitchen are run by wonderful local volunteers serving over 35,000 meals a year.  We continuously work to get more local, healthy, and organic food to serve to our guests.
