Aldersgate Outreach Community Center
AOCC is a primary mission of Aldersgate. Our food pantry provides food to hundreds of families each month at our Ryders Lane location. In addition, we make a monthly onsite distribution to almost 100 residents at the Hall’s Corner Senior Apartments in East Brunswick. Clients of the food pantry are registered and meet Federal and State guidelines for assistance.
