The New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition (NJAHC)provides technical assistance and information to food pantries, soup kitchens and other emergency food providers throughout the state. It also educates the public and policy makers about hunger and food insecurity and works to increase poor and low-income people’s access to adequate food for healthy living by advocating for responsible public policies on the local, state and federal levels.
For the first six months of 2012, the national food hardship rate was 18.2%, according to data released by Gallup on August 22nd.
Last year, NJAHC launched an Outreach and Enrollment assistance project to help seniors get SNAP benefits. Outreach coordinators visit senior housing and day programs and help seniors fill out and submit the online application.
