Medford Friends Meeting has initiated several projects which serve the local community. 

Feeding the Hungry

Friends donate food and/or money, coupons, and ink cartridges to support our food projects throughout the year. Food is currently being sent to New Visions in Camden, Head Start families of Burlington County and other local families in need.  Volunteers also support the food bank held at the Al-Nasr Mosque in Willingboro with donations and labor each third Saturday of the month. 

Fresh Start

The goal of this project is to provide household goods for people moving from homeless shelters to their own apartments.  Volunteers provide gently used or new items as needed or on a case by case basis.  They work in conjunction with social service staff at the transitional shelter in Mt. Holly managed by People First.
