Get Involved

We Can’t Do It Without You!

There are so many ways you can get involved with us. Get started today!

Donate Food to CFBNJ


Today, over 530,000 New Jerseyans in our 15-county service area still struggle to put food on their table. When you, your community, or your business choose to donate food to CFBNJ, you directly serve our neighbors. Whether collecting non-perishable foods or personal necessities such as diapers and period supplies, every contribution matters. You can host a food drive virtually or in-person- whichever is most convenient for you and your community. View more to see how you can participate and give food today. 

Donate Money to CFBNJ


For every $1 you donate to CFBNJ, we can provide 3 meals to our neighbors in need, and for every $3, we can purchase 6 diapers. Your funds give CFBNJ the freedom to source through back-end and wholesale partnerships that utilize more out of your money, while also fueling our programs that are geared towards specific needs such as our child, senior, and family nutrition programs, Hunger as a Health Issue programs, and Hygiene Initiatives.

 Volunteer at CFBNJ


Both our Hillside and Egg Harbor Township warehouses are open for volunteers! Volunteers may sign up for a shift through our online portal and typically spend 2-3 hours sorting through food or assembling Kids Cafe Meals, Family Packs, or Emergency Meal Kits. For more dedicated volunteers, consider our Care Crew program! 

Host an Event 


Want to get directly involved in the fight against hunger? Host your own fundraising event today! Go solo or gather your friends, family, and colleagues to raise food and funds for our neighbors in need. Whether you hold in-person or online, hosting your own event is a great way to get creative and educate your community on why food security matters. Don’t know where to start?

CFBNJ offers a variety of innovative youth programs to educate and engage New Jersey children, teens, and young adults in the fight against hunger and poverty.
