Upcoming FoodBank Events

There are many ways for you to support our efforts to end hunger in New Jersey — everything from volunteering and donating to attending one of our special events. Here’s our latest list of fundraisers hosted by the FoodBank and by members of our community hoping to make a difference. You can check out more on our events calendar (and you can even host your own FoodBank fundraiser!).

  • The Sue Adler Team’s 100th Home Sale Charity Program: Sue Adler has again nominated the FoodBank for the 100th Home Sale Charity Program. Vote for the FoodBank once every day through Friday, April 14, to get us past Round 1! Your vote will bring the FoodBank closer to winning the $10,000 grand prize.
  • “We Are Family” Disco: Get your groove on for our cause! Join the Disco Party at The Woodland in Maplewood on Sunday, April 2. The family-friendly event is free, but donations of non-perishable items are encouraged.
  • Feeding Our Families Food Drive: We’re partnering with NBC 4 New York, Telemundo 47 and Stop & Shop for a large-scale food and volunteer drive on Saturday, April 8. While getting your groceries, make sure to donate food and/or funds to support our hunger-relief efforts. We’re still looking for volunteers!
