CUMAC feeds people and changes lives. It works to alleviate hunger and its root causes for those in need in Paterson, Passaic County, and northern New Jersey.
CUMAC has been serving the community for over 30 years. It began in the late 1970s, when then Paterson school teacher Hugh Dunlop recruited his church congregation to collect food for his obviously ailing students. As they met that need, a greater need in the city of Paterson became obvious, and a small pantry was born to provide emergency food to the local community. In 1985, CUMAC was incorporated as the Center of United Methodist Aid to the Community Ecumenically Concerned Helping Others (CUMAC/ECHO) – a name meant to show that while we are an urban mission of the United Methodist Church, we serve all people in need without discrimination.
In 2001, Art Moore brought his passion for creating community into managing properties. Moore Investment Properties LLC, has been successful because of their com- mitment to providing exceptional and comprehensive real estate expertise to clients and residents.
