Action Against Hunger® has helped feed the hungry in northern New Jersey since 1991 when The Record launched its first food drive in response to needs identified from reports in the newspaper. Over the years, the initiative has grown, and the food drive now encompasses four counties in New Jersey.
Action Against Hunger is now the largest food drive in the metropolitan area, serving over 10 pantries, which assist more than 40,000 clients.
The Foundation of Northern New Jersey Inc., formerly known as North Jersey Media Group Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing charitable funding and services to make a significant difference in the lives of North Jersey residents.
Action Against Hunger® serves over 10 North Jersey pantries in four counties: Bergen, Passaic, Morris and Essex. These pantries serve the community year-round.
