Many New Jersey residents are faced with paying bills or eating. More than 1.1 million people, 12.4 percent of our population are struggling. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey is trying to fill the gap.
It’s a distribution hub working with a network of more than a thousand partner charities to bring food to those in need throughout the state.
