Our Mission

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.

Our Results

About 54 million Americans are food insecure, which means they don’t know if they have enough to feed themselves and their families. More than 1.2 million live right here in New Jersey. Together, we can end hunger.
