Ways To Give Back This Summer

As summer approaches, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey is gearing up for our toughest season. During the summer months, food insecure kids lose access to school meals, often their only reliable source of healthy food. Join our efforts by attending one (or more) of our special events and fundraisers.

Atlantic City Food Truck Festival: The 2nd annual Atlantic City Food Truck Festival returns to the Boardwalk on Saturday, June 3, and Sunday, June 4. Enjoy live music, celebrity cooking demonstrations, a kids zone and much more.​ The proceeds will benefit the Community FoodBank of New Jersey – Southern Branch and AC Vets.

Applebee’s Pancake Breakfast: NJ Mental Health Counselors Association is hosting a pancake breakfast fundraiser at Applebee’s in Union on Sunday, June 4, from 8 to 10 am. “Help Feed a Family” will benefit the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s efforts to end hunger in New Jersey.

Real Estate Breakfast: Our first Real Estate Breakfast will be a morning to celebrate the New Jersey real estate community and network with others investing in the future of our state. Join us on Wednesday, June 14, to support our hunger-relief efforts and to honor Prudential for its commitment to real estate development in Newark and to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey! Visit for more information. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

Atlantic City Seafood Festival: Join us at the Atlantic City Boardwalk on Saturday, September 9, and Sunday, September 10, for the Seafood Festival. It’s a family-friendly event, which will once again support the Community FoodBank of New Jersey – Southern Branch with a portion of the proceeds and the Chowder Cook-Off!
