Who We Are

Founded as an agency in 1982, a coalition of concerned ecumenical congregations, designed Let’s Celebrate to help satisfy the overwhelming need for emergency food services in Jersey City, New Jersey.  In the early 1980’s the number of homeless and hungry people far outnumbered public food pantries and soup kitchens, creating a population without access to one of their basic needs; food.  We have since broadened the scope of our community services to address the root causes of hunger by combining a comprehensive framework of ancillary support services including nutrition assistance, financial education and planning, supportive housing, affordable housing and social service support.

We are a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization so all contributions are tax deductible at limits designated by state and federal law.
