SHuPPrinceton's Core Programs
Since it’s founding in 2013 SHUPP has expanded it’s programs to meet the evolving needs of the community it serves in Princeton. These unprecedented times are no exception. You can read about our newest “fresh produce” initiative below.
The board continues to oversee the program and supports it with advocacy, fund raising, outreach, education, and publicity.
Our Fresh Produce Delivery Program
SHUPP has shifted our 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. Delivery of the produce was arranged and negotiated by SHUPP with a wholesale provider. Our provider is paid to accompany school buses and school staff in a refrigerated truck to make bi-weekly deliveries in conjunction with the school’s food distribution schedule.
