Now More Than Ever

We fight hunger and poverty in New Jersey by assisting those in need and seeking long-term solutions. We engage, educate and empower all sectors of society in the battle. We fill the emptiness caused by hunger with Food, Help and Hope.

Food & Nutrition Programs

More than eight hundred partners – including food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters – ensure that nutritious food is available to families in need year-round.

Resource Access Programs

We make sure everyone eligible for government benefits gets them by providing SNAP application assistance in our communities.

Workforce Development

Our job training programs seek to address the root cause of hunger – poverty – by providing those in need with interpersonal and professional skills to help them earn a living wage.

Our Results

38 million Americans are food insecure, which means they don’t know if they have enough to feed themselves and their families. Over 650,000 live right here in New Jersey. Together, we can end hunger.


million pounds of healthy produce distributed each year

This week, members of our team attended the grand opening of the new HomeGoods in Flanders, where they received a check for $10,000. Thank you to the... store for the generous donation! 🏠💕

Earlier this week, a few of our steadfast supporters were invited to the Kings Food Markets cooking studio in Short Hills for a cooking demonstration... by Chef Paul Kapner, Daryl Walker, and several FSTA students.

Guests were encouraged to cook alongside the chefs to learn how to make vegetable spring rolls, summer quinoa salad, and pistachio crusted sea bass.

Thanks to all who joined us for this fun and tasty event! 😋

Today, we, along with Food Bank of South Jersey, Fulfill, Mercer Street Friends, and Norwescap New Jersey, proudly hosted Feeding New Jersey 2023, ...the first-ever statewide conference for community partners.

Nearly 300 representatives from food pantries, soup kitchens, and other local hunger-relief organizations came together to learn, network, and collaborate towards a hunger-free Garden State.

The program featured an advocacy panel with all five food banks’ CEOs, addresses from Speaker Craig J. Coughlin and Director of the Office of the Food Security Advocate Mark Dinglasan, peer-to-peer breakout sessions, a networking lunch, a town hall on operational excellence, and concluding remarks from Feeding America CEO Claire Babineaux-Fontenot.

Thank you to all of the attendees, speakers, and sponsors who made this such an incredible day! Feeding New Jersey 2023 was generously supported by Instacart, KarryKlean, and DoorDash.

Cooking can be messy, which is why properly washing our hands is crucial to avoid food-born illnesses. In this video, Senior Nutrition Educator ...Ashley takes us through best practices for washing our hands. She'll teach you how to keep yourself clean so you can get messy in the kitchen and make some delicious creations! #WellnessWednesday

📰 BIG NEWS! The Community FoodBank of New Jersey is pleased to announce that Elizabeth McCarthy has been selected as its new President & ...CEO.

Elizabeth has been singularly dedicated to serving as a non-profit leader with an unwavering commitment to supporting programs for underserved and vulnerable individuals to break the cycle of generational poverty. She brings a wealth of experience, a fresh perspective, and a data-driven approach to assessing, allocating, and leveraging resources.

Calling all advocates! Senator Cory Booker will be hosting a virtual Farm Bill Town Hall on Wednesday, June 7 at 2:30 pm.

The Farm Bill is ...very important to CFBNJ's work fighting hunger! Congress passes this omnibus legislation every five years that sets national policy and funding levels for agriculture, nutrition, food assistance, conservation, and more. The bill reauthorizes SNAP, our nation's front line defense against food insecurity.

Happy #PrideMonth from CFBNJ! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

This month, we celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and the freedom to be ...unapologetically yourself. With joy, love, and pride, we affirm all unique identities.

Meet Ali (she/they), CFBNJ's Mobile Pantry Manager in South Jersey. They bring food to areas where there are not enough food pantries and soup kitchens to meet the need.

In honor of Pride Month, we asked Ali about her job and identity:

"As the Mobile Pantry Manager, I travel across Cape May, Cumberland, and Atlantic Counties connecting some of our most rural and isolated neighbors with emergency food. As a visibly queer person, it's both nerve-wracking and joyful to show up in new and unexpected places! I'm so grateful that CFBNJ makes me feel safe to be my most authentic self and that just by showing up, I can remind our neighbors that queer people are everywhere, too."

Touch a life

With more than 650,000 people facing hunger in New Jersey, including over 175,000 children, we must continue to do everything we can to meet their needs. Your donation will be put to work immediately, helping us source and distribute food to our hungry neighbors.

Thank You to Our Partners & Sponsors
