December 22nd: Northfield Township Government Office and Food Pantry Pausing New In-Person Appointments

Due to the recent surge of  COVID-19 case numbers we will be pausing new in-person appointments for LIHEAP, Social Services, Assessor’s Office, and Passports until Tuesday, January 18, 2022. Please note our staff will be providing phone and online service to residents during this time. Our goal is to maintain the health and safety of the staff, volunteers and clients.

We will continue our socially distanced food pantry operation Monday-Friday, safely distributing bags of food to clients outdoors with shopping carts. 

These service changes are being made out of an abundance of caution, and will be reevaluated as new data on the Coronavirus becomes available. We appreciate your understanding.
