Center For Food Action – Non Profit in New Jersey


A year ago, Eileen lost her husband. She and Jana, her 10-year old daughter, moved into a smaller apartment and are working to rebuild their lives. Then, two months ago, Eileen was laid off from her job.

As a mom, Eileen’s main concern is keeping Jana’s life as stable as possible. Making and sharing dinner together every evening and being able to tuck Jana into bed every evening is a big part of that stability so as Eileen struggled to put nutritious food on their table, pay rent and keep the lights on, she found herself turning to CFA for help.
