Community FoodBank of New Jersey

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey is partnering with the New Jersey Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster, the Red Cross, and Salvation Army to deliver food to displaced families – up to 100,000 pounds of food per day. The food bank sends ready-to-eat meals and clean water to shelters in the areas affected by the hurricane – 11 of 21 counties in the state. The organization prepared meals in advance of the storm and continued operations afterward, despite losing power for several days.

In addition to monetary support, it is also accepting donations of depleted food supplies, including meals in a can, canned tuna, peanut butter, granola bars, diapers, and baby food.

The food bank, which began in 1975, distributes 39 million pounds of food annually, feeding 900,000 low-income people across New Jersey.
