Don't Go Hungry - Get Help
Housing and the high cost of living in New Jersey can make it hard to have enough money for food. Healthcare, fuel, and utility costs and/or a sudden emergency, illness, low wages, or fixed incomes make it hard for many New Jersey residents to afford food.
For this reason, many New Jersey residents with low income, as well as those who have just been through a life altering event that has weakened their financial resources are in need of assistance. Don't go hungry. There are government and local resources that may help. Find out more about them by reading pages devoted to that topic on our website here or by dialing 2-1-1 and speaking with a caring professional who knows about these things.
There is also a website which provides access to a current database of food pantries, food banks and soup kitchens throughout the state. Here you will be able to learn the location and contact information for these resources. The site also offers nutritional information and answers to basic questions about food resources in our state.
