Food & Nutrition Programs

More than one thousand partners – including food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters – ensure that nutritious food is available to families in need year-round.

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ), a member of Feeding America®, is the leading anti-hunger and anti-poverty organization in the state with warehouses in Hillside (Union County) and Egg Harbor Township (Atlantic County). These locations serve area programs and community partners - over 1,000 - in 15 of 21 New Jersey counties. Last year, we distributed food for over 66 million meals (nearly 80 million pounds), 22% of which was fresh produce.

Population(s) Served

Our free 15-week culinary and life skills program, the Food Service Training Academy, equips students with marketable skills to earn a living wage in the food service industry.

Population(s) Served

Provides a nourishing evening meal each school day at more than 20 sites in our Northern and Southern New Jersey service areas.

Population(s) Served

The Family Pack Program provides food-insecure households with school-age children supplemental food each school-year weekend, when school breakfast and school lunch are not available.

Population(s) Served

Distributes food to low-income communities underserved by traditional food pantries, including motels in Atlantic County that temporarily house homeless families.

Population(s) Served

We make sure everyone eligible for government benefits gets them by providing SNAP application assistance in our communities. Our bilingual Resource Access team visits food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, churches and other community sites serving low-income families to offer free pre-screening for SNAP eligibility. We help those who are likely eligible for benefits complete the online SNAP application and provide guidance to prepare them for eligibility interviews. We also provide help applying for energy assistance and other benefits.

Population(s) Served

About 100,000 New Jersey seniors live with limited economic resources that force them to make tough choices between essentials like medicine and food. We distribute boxes with food items – including shelf-stable milk and canned protein – and make fresh produce available monthly to seniors at risk of hunger

Population(s) Served

Last year, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey rescued nearly 9 million pounds of nutritious food that would otherwise have been wasted from grocers to help feed struggling families.

Our Supermarket Gleaning Program safely recovers food that retailers can’t market because of minor damage or a code date issue, redirecting millions of pounds of fresh, healthy produce, meats, baked goods, and prepared foods to our neighbors in need. Our fleet of refrigerated trucks picks up rescued food every day from generous donors across the state.

Population(s) Served

Diaper Program

Low-income families with young children often struggle with diaper need, having to make tough choices between diapers and other necessities. 1 in 3 mothers in the U.S. can’t afford diapers and must make these impossible decisions every day. As a member of the National Diaper Bank Network, we partner with 50 of our agencies to provide parents with diapers each month to keep their babies clean, dry, and healthy.

Period Initiative
Lack of access to period supplies due to financial limitations is known as period poverty and is widespread among the women and girls we serve. 1 in 4 American women does not have consistent access to period products. An allied program of the National Diaper Bank Network’s Alliance for Period Supplies, the Period Initiative provides free period products every month to women in need at 35 of our partner agencies.
