Volunteer

Volunteers play a key role in CFA’s mission to end hunger and homelessness in our neighborhoods. Every year hundreds of CFA volunteers donate their time and energy to improving the lives of local individuals and families who are in need. To volunteer, please contact Jim James: 201.529.2029 or email your volunteer questions or requests: volunteer@cfanj.org.

Organize a Food Drive:

CFA relies upon the community to host food drives that will provide the needed groceries to fill our emergency food packages. This job is vital to our ability to provide food to those in need.

Weekend Snack Pack Program

The Weekend Snack Pack Program provides several volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups:

• Collect and pack snack pack food items.
• Raise funds to allow CFA to purchase snack pack food items for your group or others to package.
• Distribute program information.
• Contribute administrative support.

Some donors commit to provide a month of weekend snack packs to one child, several children, a class, or an entire school!

Administrative Support:

Fundraising, making phone calls, filing, mailing, record keeping, and public outreach. 

Pantry & Warehouse Work:

Volunteers are needed to sort donated food, stock pantry and warehouse shelves, and prepare the emergency food packages that are given to our clients.

Special Events:

Volunteers are needed at special CFA events. We typically have shifts needed before, during and after each event.

All site and warehouse volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer without parent supervision. Younger volunteers, with parent supervision, can help by organizing a food drive.
