Center For Food Action – Non Profit in New Jersey

Donate Funds Today

CFA has grown from a small food pantry in the basement of a church to the leading food provider in northern New Jersey. For over 45 years we worked to further our mission to prevent hunger and homelessness in northern New Jersey. Over the years we have been there to help communities recover from storms, recessions, and other crises. We never could have envisioned a time when we would serve 1,000 families a week. Even though we have had to temporarily give up our in-person advocacy, we remain connected to those we serve and strive to be a resource beyond food for those in need.
