“A capable production of “Circle Mirror Transformation”…an appropriate choice to open the handsome venue…the understated yet vibrant performances by the Mile Square Theater’s ensemble give a sense of quirky realism to this lovely play.
—The New York Times

“…skillfully rendered anew at Mile Square Theatre.”—

“Those who missed CMT’s original storied run at Playwright Horizons, or any other rendition of this five-character dramedy, should run to catch the thoroughly charming production at the Mile Square Theatre in Hoboken.”

HFA Summer Food Drive

Our Summer Food Drive Has Begun!
Kids Summer Meals & Snacks

School’s out, but hunger isn’t. What are we doing to help local kids?
Hoboken Family Alliance is teaming up with Whole Foods Markets in Edgewater, NJ to conduct a summer food drive for the month of June.

When school’s out for summer vacation, children living in poverty stop receiving free meals Monday through Friday at school and face hunger at home. Often their parents work in low-wage jobs or they are unemployed.

We would like to ensure that children in low-income areas in Hoboken continue to receive nutritious meals during long summer vacations when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast. Food will be distributed to local children in need.

We would like to invite you to assist us with helping curb hunger by visiting Whole Foods to donate, or give a financial contribution.
Donate via Paypal Here:

Any funds donated will go 100% to purchase food for those in need.

Our drive will be running at Whole Foods until June 30  for distribution to families within Hoboken.

If you would like to donate in person while shopping at Whole Foods, suggested Donations would include non-perishable, nutritious, kid-friendly, shelf stable food to sustain them over the summer break.

The following is a list of suggested non-perishable items for purchase at Whole Foods include:

Whole Grain Cereal
Pancake Mix (Just Add Water) and Syrup
Oatmeal or Grits
Peanut Butter, Almond butter or Nut-Free Spread
Jam or Jelly
Canned Fruit, Fruit Cups or Applesauce
100% Juice (Boxes or Bottled)
