As a result of current food shortages, food banks and pantries are struggling to keep their shelves stocked due to the increase in demand for food. The Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders wants to encourage our residents to donate to pantries across the county.
The Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders in collaboration with the Gloucester County Office of Emergency Management and Department of Economic Development have launched Gloucester County is Open for Business.

The Gloucester County Animal Shelter (GCAS) is not currently accepting surrendered animals, so in order to help keep pets in their homes with their families, the shelter is starting the GCAS Pet Food Pantry in order to help pet owners in need.
While Gloucester County residents practice social distancing and acclimate to their new norm in response to the global coronavirus pandemic, the shelter is focused on finding our dogs, cats and even rabbits their forever homes.
The Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders and Gloucester County Consumer Protection is warning all residents of potential fraud against consumers purchasing products used to stay safe and prevent illness during the Covid-19 outbreak.
