College Food Pantries

With tight budgets and busy schedules, college students are particularly vulnerable to hunger, which can hinder their abilities to excel in the classroom and put them at greater risk of dropping out. We distribute food to 16 campus pantries throughout the state and work with government to help enact long-term solutions to college hunger in New Jersey.

Last year, the FoodBank distributed nearly 80,000 pounds of food through college pantries that collectively provided for almost 2,300 students per month.
