Staff Spotlight: Meet Ali

Happy #PrideMonth from CFBNJ!

This month, we celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and the freedom to be unapologetically yourself. With joy, love, and pride, we affirm all unique identities.

Meet Ali (she/they), CFBNJ’s Mobile Pantry Manager in South Jersey. They bring food to areas where there are not enough food pantries and soup kitchens to meet the need.

In honor of Pride Month, we asked Ali about her job and identity: “As the Mobile Pantry Manager, I travel across Cape May, Cumberland, and Atlantic Counties connecting some of our most rural and isolated neighbors with emergency food. As a visibly queer person, it’s both nerve-wrecking and joyful to show up in new and unexpected places! I’m so grateful that CFBNJ makes me feel safe to be my most authentic self and that just by showing up, I can remind our neighbors that queer people are everywhere, too.”
