Tuz Chi Vegetarian Food Pantry.

27 Nov

I cannot believe that I never knew about this place, The Tzu Chi Vegetarian Food Pantry.  It is located in Cedar Grove, NJ, which is like 5 miles from my house, that is why I am so ‘how the heck did I never not know about this?’. This food pantry has been operating for the past 2 years every Friday and Saturday with full support of their local community.

They started out slow but they now help out about 350 families each month. What sets the Tzu Chi Vegetarian Food Pantry apart is that they also offer fresh fruits and vegetables. This is so vital into changing people’s lives, start with the way they eat and the rest will follow. Many of the recipients of the food from the pantry say this has not only made them better eaters but healthier people.

As we all know, we are what we eat. These are crazy times right now, trying times and hard times. People who need some assistance with food along the way should not be forced to eat junk all the time. I know all about personal accountability, it’s my favorite thing to preach about lol but when you don’t have anything and have to take what is given, you cannot complain. What Tuz Chi is providing is so much more than just healthy food. It is a peek into a new life, a new way of eating, a new way of living and a new way of seeing things. And from what I gather from the articles I have read, all of the recipients of the food feel the same way.

Besides feeding those in the community who are in need, the people of the Tuz Chi Vegetarian Food Pantry also clean up roadways, aid in disaster relief all over the world and even supply fruits and veggies from their own pantries for those in need. It’s easy for some to kick others when they are down. But it’s even easier for some to enlighten them and that is exactly what these wonderful people are doing.

Please support the Tuz Chi Vegetarian Food Pantry.

Tuz Chi Vegetarian Food Pantry. 150 Commerce Rd. Cedar Grove, NJ.  Friday and Saturday 12pm-4pm.
