The Southern Branch of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey is located in Egg Harbor Township and serves clients in Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland counties. Right off the Garden State Parkway, the Southern Branch offers on-location food pantry hours as well as a mobile pantry to help get food to hungry men, women, and children in more remote areas of South Jersey. We are also happy to pre-screen and help you apply for SNAP benefits (formerly food stamps).
To get food from our mobile and on-site pantries run by our Egg Harbor Township location, clients (as well as every member of their household) must show proof of residence. Two forms are required: a state issued ID such as a driver’s license, and a piece of mail (processed by the US Postal Service) with their name and address on it. A lease that lists all occupants is also accepted. To get food for school-aged children under 18, their school record with their name and address on it is accepted, and for children younger than school age, we will accept a birth certificate. In the event that parents are divorced, children can only be listed under one parent in our records.
