Our Programs

Our Core Programs

Our effort to reach more children in need within our community has encouraged us to expand both our mission and our reach. Evolving beyond the core initiative of the weekend food program SHUPPrinceton has strengthened our partnership with the Princeton School District to make accessing food easier.

Our Fresh Produce Delivery Program

SHUPP shifted the backpack program to take this pandemic head on.  SHUPP has arranged to provide 10 lbs bags of fresh produce to food insecure families of Free and Reduced Lunch recipients enrolled in the Princeton Public Schools.  The bags are distributed to the students while at school to bring home to their families.

Growing with SHUPP

In our efforts to expand our outreach to the residents of Princeton SHUPP has build and planted multiple community gardens open to our neighbors to enjoy the fresh produce grown by our SHUPP volunteers.

Vertical Farm Program

In conjunction with the Princeton Public Schools we have installed a vertical farm in the Littlebrook Elementary School.

This pilot program will complement the already robust outdoor, raised bed garden programs that have existed for some time in a number of Princeton Public Schools.  It will allow for gardening all year round.  It will allow the students to continue their agricultural adventures indoor during the cold weather, allow them to study, experiment, care for and maintain a gardening pod that has the potential to grow as much as 300 pounds of produce throughout the year.

School Snack Program

In our efforts to expand our outreach, SHUPP has provided Princeton Middle School and Princeton High School liaisons with snacks to supplement the students during the school day.
