The Community FoodBank of New Jersey, a member of Feeding America®, is the largest anti-hunger and anti-poverty organization in the state. With support from our donors, volunteers and hunger-fighting advocates, the FoodBank distributes about 44 million pounds of food every year among more than 1,000 community partners including pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, mobile pantries, and child and senior feeding programs. More than 4.7 million times a year, someone in need is fed by the FoodBank’s network of partners. Through an array of services including feeding and job-training programs, as well as nutrition education and assistance, the FoodBank is the powerful change agent that provides the basic human essentials for people to thrive.
Our mission is to fight hunger and poverty in New Jersey by assisting those in need and seeking long-term solutions. We will engage, educate and empower all sectors of society in the battle. We fill the emptiness caused by hunger with FOOD, HELP and HOPE.
