Initially organized to serve the less fortunate in Nutley, the social service programs created during the New Deal and Great Society shifted the focus of NFSB to counseling for families and individuals. NFSB still runs a food pantry to help with supplemental nutrition needs of their clients.
NFSB is at 155 Chestnut Street, Nutley, NJ 07110 973.667.1884
