Don't Go Hungry - Get Help

End HungerHousing 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 (click on links on the right side of this page) or by dialing 2-1-1 and speaking with a caring professional who knows about these things.

We can help you find resources to your home. Dial 2-1-1 anytime of the day or night and speak with one of our resource specialists or search the 2-1-1 database (the search bar is at the top of every one of our web pages) using the search term "food" and choosing from the search categories provided to find the resource that best fits your needs. There is also a website called End Hunger NJ which provides access to a database of food pantries, food banks and soup kitchens throughout the state. The site also offers nutritional information and answers to basic questions about food resources in our state.
