Because of You

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

Over 33 million Americans are food insecure, which means they don’t know if they have enough to feed themselves and their families. More than 725,000 live right here in New Jersey. Together, we can end hunger.


million pounds of food distributed each year
