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. Over 650,000 live right here in New Jersey. Together, we can end hunger.

Our latest episode of the New Jersey Banker podcast focuses on food insecurity in New Jersey and features @CFBNJ CEO, Carlos Rodriguez. Click here to... listen.

"A meal is so much more than a plate of calories. It's a plate of hope for the hopeless. It's a voice for the voiceless. That's ...what a meal is." @chefjoseandres tells #WHConfHungerHealth attendees and viewers.

"I believe that even complex problems can have very simple solutions. Starting today, we have to take action. We can change the way our food ...system works starting today." @chefjoseandres gives his keynote address during the #WHConfHungerHealth

"We must move our mindset from caloric consumption to nutritional consumption. Going to bed with a full belly but no nutrition is feeding a crisis." Mayor @ericadamsfornyc is speaking right now during the afternoon plenary. #WHConfHungerHealth
