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.
A community service program administered by the Foundation of Northern NJ Inc., formerly known as North Jersey Media Group Foundation. The program runs the largest one-day food drive in the metropolitan area and has helped feed those in need in North Jersey since 1991.
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”.*
