Feed Truck Ministries, Inc. (FTMI), is a Christian non-profit organization “hatched” in cooperation with Kingston United Methodist Church and supported by the Greater NJ Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church (UMC), along with the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of the UMC. FTMI exists to foster spiritual engagement and a love of neighbor among young adults in central New Jersey, particularly on and around the college campuses of Mercer County. We do this through our two sustainable ministries: The Feed Truck and The Feed Truck Café
The Feed Truck serves locally sourced, handcrafted breakfast and late night fare – but that’s not all. We’re also in the business of serving up radical hospitality and a taste of hope to the good folks of Central New Jersey. We are especially interested in giving young people an unexpected, positive encounter with the Church.
By providing an excellent locally sourced food experience, The Feed Truck generates funds for, and opportunities to serve with, area charitable organizations centering around food security and social services — while simultaneously creating opportunities for meaningful employment, community investment, and spiritual engagement. Through The Feed Truck, FTMI works closely with United Methodist churches and campus ministries by building bridges between young adults, local service organizations and area faith communities.
The Feed Truck Café is a response to the testimony of a number of current Princeton University students. They comment on the level of anxiety in on-campus study spaces, which is especially palpable leading up to midterms and finals weeks. Princeton United Methodist Church has offered its space to provide a place of rest during these peak academic periods. The Café is open to offer a safe place to all its guests, whether they are preparing for finals, engaging in programming opportunities, friendship, spiritual engagement, or good old-fashioned fun.
