Hope is Here

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. About 800,000 live right here in New Jersey. Together, we can end hunger.

24

million pounds of healthy produce distributed each year

New Jersey Devils Assistant Captain Dougie Hamilton took a practice break to join associates from Stop & Shop as they presented a check to CFBNJ ...from their Community Assist Program. During the campaign, Stop & Shop donated to CFBNJ for every home game assist the Devils tallied during the season. With 216 total assists this past season, Stop & Shop gave a total of $10,800 – the equivalent of nearly 32,400 meals for New Jersey residents facing food insecurity. THANK YOU!

Did you know? The poverty rate within the LGBTQ+ community is almost four times as much as among non-LGBTQ+ people.

Our LGBTQ+ neighbors ...face unique barriers to financial stability, putting them at disproportionate risk of hunger. During #PrideMonth, as we celebrate self-affirmation and the accomplishments of the LGBTQ+ community, we must also acknowledge that there is still work to do to ensure equality and food security for all, regardless of sexuality or gender identity.

This Pride Month, consider volunteering at CFBNJ to help provide much-needed meals and groceries for our LGBTQ+ neighbors in need.

Touch a life

With about 800,000 people facing hunger in New Jersey, including 200,000 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
