Action Against Hunger®

Unfortunately, we are unable to sponsor an in-person Action Against Hunger® Food Drive this year. HOWEVER, with your support we will be able to still feed our hungry neighbors. As you know, the pandemic has created an increasing demand on our local food pantries and many more of our neighbors are going hungry.
For every dollar you donate, we can buy $11 worth of food by purchasing wholesale and saving money on fuel, transport and logistics.

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.


Welcome to Action Against Hunger®

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”.*

Please help us reach the more than 200,000 households that depend on food supplied by our state’s food pantries.

How You Can Help
