Executive Director (PT)

THE CHUBBY'S PROJECT (TCP) is a 501 C 3 nonprofit organization located in Hopewell Borough, New Jersey. TCP began during the pandemic with a handful of volunteers delivering groceries and hot meals while supporting isolated, vulnerable neighbors with a knock and a smile. By 2022, TCP volunteers were delivering over 7200 meals annually. In addition to regular meal deliveries (every Thursday, Friday and Saturday), TCP manages a summer Sharing Garden on land donated by the D&R Greenway, two 24/7 access food pantries, and has partnerships with many local farmers, schools, and community organizations.

Though separate and distinct, Aunt Chubby’s Luncheonette provides resources and space for the preparation and packing of weekly meals along with storage space for pantry goods. It is a unique partnership with the opportunity to develop more fully. TCP has a budget of approximately $200,000 with funds raised through foundation grants, business donations, individual giving and a variety of community-inspired events.
