CUMAC - Food Bank  

223 Ellison, Paterson NJ 07509

Harvard alumni have a historic tradition of public service. Please join the Harvard Club of NJ to help local communities dealing with difficult challenges such as feeding and clothing their families – and continue the important tradition of “Harvard Serves.”

The Harvard Club of New Jersey welcomes fellow graduates and their families to the event to help support this local food bank of New Jersey to sort and repackage food and meals for distribution to families statewide.  This volunteer opportunity is open to both members and non-members!

The CUMAC supports the communities of Northern New Jersey and the CUMAC's food pantry served over 30,000 people last year.  The CUMAC relies on volunteers to help continue its mission of fighting hunger throughout New Jersey.  Website:
