NJ Anti-Hunger Coalition

Feeding NJ Kids

As co-lead of the New Jersey Food for Thought Campaign, we are working to end childhood hunger through expansion of school breakfast, summer meals and afterschool meals.


Food stamps is the first line of defense against hunger. Join our efforts to protect and strengthen this critical food aid.

Policy Priorities

Advancing legislative and policy change is at the heart of the coalition’s strategic approach to advancing hunger solutions at the local, state and federal levels for all NJ residents.

The NJ Anti-Hunger Coalition

Working to end hunger in New Jersey through education, advocacy and activism

Hunger haunts every corner of New Jersey. That’s why a statewide response is the best way to end hunger. 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 to combat hunger. We push for sweeping changes to ensure that every single New Jersey resident has healthy food to eat — every single day.
