Action Against Hunger®

Action Against Hunger has helped feed hungry people in New Jersey since 1991. The program was launched by North Jersey Media Group as one-day food drive in response to needs identified from reports in the newspaper.

Today, we provide direct financial support to food banks and organizations throughout New Jersey that feed people and help change the systems that cause food insecurity.

Please donate using our secure website or send your check to Action Against Hunger, PO Box 75, Hackensack, NJ 07602.

All donations no matter how small will receive a receipt.

What We Have Done With Your Help

In 2019 alone, thousands of our hungry neighbors were fed through our support of the Center for Food Action, MEND (Meeting Essential Needs with Dignity) and Interfaith Food Pantry.

Last year’s (2019) food drive brought in nearly 16 tons of food with an average retail value of approx. “$55,000”.*
