Advancing Comprehensive Solutions to Solve Hunger

Through policy and legislative change at the state and federal levels, Hunger Free New Jersey works with a wide array of partners to influence decision-makers and advance change to end hunger in New Jersey.

We inform lawmakers at the state and federal levels, while also working with local officials to make policy and practice changes so that more children, families, low-income workers, seniors and others have enough healthy food to eat every single day.
