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

85

million meals provided every year

17000

volunteer visits annually

This International Day of Families and every day, CFBNJ is committed to feeding families of all sizes and structures - like Neymar's family. ...Having moved to Newark recently, they receive Family Packs with enough food to sustain the family of four for several days. #HopeisHere

This International Day of Families and every day, CFBNJ is committed to feeding families of all sizes and structures - like Neymar's family. ...Seven-year-old Neymar, his two siblings, and his mother moved to Newark at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, when food insecurity was higher than ever. Neymar would often hide extra food from the lunchroom in his backpack to take home when they didn’t have enough to eat. His teachers noticed that he was always hungry and struggled to focus in class.

That's when the school enrolled Neymar's family in CFBNJ's Family Pack program. We know that where there's a hungry child, there's a hungry household, so Family Packs contain enough food to sustain an entire family for several days. Now, Neymar excels academically and socially! #HopeisHere
