We Are There

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 one thousand 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.

Food Service Training Academy

Our free 15-week culinary and life skills program equips students with marketable skills to earn a living wage in the food service industry.

million pounds of healthy produce distributed each year
