Hunger Free New Jersey

Hunger haunts every corner of New Jersey. That’s why a statewide response is critical. Hunger Free New Jersey, formerly known as the New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition, leads that effort, educating the public and decision-makers about hunger — its causes, its solutions. We mobilize diverse organizations. We push for sweeping changes so every single New Jersey resident has healthy food to eat — every single day.
