Volunteer your time.

There are many ways to volunteer your time here at the Newark Food Closet. 

All Donations go to support the Newark Food Closet. 

We do not have paid staff, we are run solely on volunteers. 


The registration volunteer takes in all required information to enter clients into the database.  Information must be correct so as not to cause confusion or interfere with tax and grants.


This person walks around our store helping clients choose the assigned amount and categories of food according to their submitted information.  

Donate Financially

  • CASH, CHECKS (made out to Newark Food Closet), GIFT CARDS. All may be sent to 301 East Miller st Newark.

  • You may also make donations through VENMO just look for @Lisa-Barrett-81 and look for our food closet sign.
