TASK Meal Outreach

For hungry families and individuals who do not live in Trenton and can’t make it to our main location — we partner with local faith-based and civic institutions to provide free hot meals throughout Mercer County.

All meals are cooked at TASK on Escher Street and include the same nutritious items from each essential food group: fruits and vegetables, protein, grain and dairy

Weekend Youth Nutrition

Every child must have the chance to be healthy and do their best in school so they can pursue their dreams and reach their fullest potential. How do we do that?

TASK works with local schools to provide weekend meals to hungry children in the Trenton area. While these children may receive free and reduced meals during the school week, when the weekend and summer comes, they have limited access to proper nutrition.

Our WYN program closes the hunger gap by offering nutritious child-friendly meals so our children can return on school Monday with a full belly.
