Kids Eating

There is a place where people wake up hungry in the morning and go to bed hungry at night. These people are our neighbors. The place they live is called Trenton.

Princeton Area Community Foundation Supports the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK)

The Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) has been awarded a $25,000 grant for operating support from the Princeton Area Community Foundation. This funding will go to support TASK’s mission to feed those who are hungry in the Trenton area and offer programs to encourage self-sufficiency and improve the quality of life of its patrons.

TASK serves a hot, nutritious lunch Monday through Friday and an evening meal Monday through Thursday at our Escher Street location. We also serve dinner Monday through Thursday at satellite locations in South Trenton, West Trenton, Hightstown and Princeton. TASK is now serving over 4,000 meals per week. This past year, TASK has served over 209,000 meals to the Mercer County area.

In addition to meal service, TASK has programming to improve patron self sufficiency and quality of life. TASK’s Adult Education Program continues to have success with students who have not prospered in other programs. More than 80 students and 70 volunteer tutors are involved in the program. This year, 24 Students have earned their GED through our program, eight of whom are now taking college level courses. Through our on-site social worker, hundreds of individuals and families have received assistance and referrals to financial aid, housing assistance, veteran’s benefits, mental health treatment, addiction treatment, and health care.

"TASK truly appreciates the support we have received from The Community Foundation," explains Dennis Micai, Executive Director. "We feel honored to be a Community Foundation grant recipient and we will use this funding to continue our mission that provides daily nourishment and services to our neighbors in need."

The Princeton Area Community Foundation supports local nonprofits with grants, advocacy, and professional guidance; The Community Foundation promotes philanthropy and helps generous people to give effectively. More information can be found at
