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

Today marks the start of National Diaper Need Awareness Week. Too many of our neighbors, like Adriana, are often forced to make impossible choices ...between diapers for their kids and other necessities.

"Sometimes, I can't afford diapers, so the diaper program at my local pantry is a big help," she said. A home health aid with two daughters and her elderly mother living at home, Adriana's single paycheck isn't always enough.

Join the fight against diaper need by participating in the #GreatBigDiaperDrive, a campaign being run by our Women Fighting Hunger and Emerging Leaders Board. Support an existing diaper drive or hold your own to collect diapers and funds for struggling families.

Visit cfbnj.org/diaper-drives to learn more.
