How New Jersey Families are Finding Hope

Did you know that 8.5% of households in New Jersey experience food insecurity? 

That’s 273,136 people! 

It is overwhelming to know that people living next door might be wondering how they’ll feed their family this weekend.  

Families shouldn’t live so vulnerably in 2020

And many of our partner agencies are taking action to alleviate hunger in the Greater Newark area.

  • Emergency Food Pantry for residents of the New Community Corporation (Family Service Bureau) (Read more here)

One of our partner agencies, Nutley Family Service Bureau, recently shared a word of gratitude from a family of seven. 

“The help we received from Nutley Family Service Bureau has given my family a moment to catch our breath, a safety net for the times we needed some food, school supplies, and gifts for the children.”
