Community FoodBank of New Jersey offers a variety of innovative programs dedicated to educating children, teens, and young adults about hunger and poverty – and giving them the tools to make meaningful change in their communities.
There are many ways for youth to get involved, either on their own or with guidance from their teachers.

Fundraising is a powerful way for students to make an impact in their communities. For every $1 donated, we are able to provide 3 nutritious meals to neighbors in need.
Online fundraisers are available for individuals or groups to create a custom page to invite friends, family, and peers to support students’ passion and make donations to help fight hunger.
CFBNJ also accepts check and cash donations. Checks can be made out to Community FoodBank of New Jersey and mailed to:
