Students Change Hunger

Students Change Hunger is a great way for students to work together to fight hunger in New Jersey. It’s a statewide food and fund drive competition for preschool through college students. 

How Students Can Join the Fight Against Hunger

Students Change Hunger (SCH) is a friendly competition where schools and youth community groups host food and/or fund drives at their schools to help feed our hungry New Jersey neighbors. Schools compete to donate the most food or funds to fight back against hunger in our state from September to January.

CFBNJ Students Change Hunger 2021-2022 Results:

During the 2021-2022 Students Change Hunger campaign, students from CFBNJ’s serving area schools collected more than 58,000 pounds of food and raised $36,900 to support CFBNJ and their mission to fight hunger..

In total, these donated resources supported 158,200 meals for neighbors in need!

This campaign helps to meet the need in our communities and teaches students the power of advocacy and outreach. Students are the next generation of leaders, and when they come together to support their communities, great things are possible.

Support CFBNJ and host a food drive or host a virtual fundraiser.
