Food & Nutrition Programs

CFBNJ’s Child Nutrition Programs ensure that kids at risk of hunger have access to nutritious meals all year long. We fill the nutrition gap by providing nutritious food year-round and outside school hours, including after-school meals at Kids Cafes, Family Packs for the weekend, and the Summer Food Service Program.
