COVID-19 Food Donation Process
We are so grateful for the food donated by the communities we serve and from businesses, organizations, and houses of worship who host food drives and collections year-round.
Social distancing guidelines require CFA to make changes in our food donation process. Donations may be made at any CFA Pantry during their hours of operation. In order to maintain social distancing guidelines in Englewood, Saddle Brook and Hackensack, we ask that you remain in your vehicle and a staff member will collect donations. If you would like a receipt, please complete our food donation form and provide a copy of it to a member of our team during the drop-off.
For donations made at CFA Mahwah, please place your donations in the blue CFA bins located near the pantry overhang.
