SHUPPrinceton provides supplemental meals on the weekend …

Because a child can’t thrive on an empty stomach

It's not complicated...

By providing supplemental food to Princeton children and their families, SHUPPrinceton seeks to reduce food insecurity in our community, so that all of our children can thrive in their classrooms and beyond.

Who are we?

Send Hunger Packing Princeton is a collaborative effort of the Princeton Human Services Commission, Mercer Street Friends (a non profit) and the Princeton School District. We distribute weekend food packs, provided by Mercer Street Friends, to children in the Princeton schools (K-5, so far) and at the Princeton Nursery School. To date, SHUPPrinceton has distributed over 100,000 meals.

How can you help?

Hunger goes by many names: food insecurity, food hardships, food shortages, meal gaps. Regardless of the chosen terminology, it is a consequence of poverty and the result of food not always being available, affordable and or accessible to people with insufficient financial resources. Together we can change this state of affairs.
