Hurricane Sandy Relief

Special Updates on Hurricane Sandy: We are currently distributing over 100,000 lbs of food daily to families displaced by Hurricane Sandy.

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey has been working closely with New Jersey Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster (VOAD), the Red Cross, and the Salvation Army to respond to the needs of the many New Jersey Residents who have been affected by the devastation. Read the Press Release here.


Financial donations have the greatest impact on our ability to help New Jersey recover by allowing us to respond to specific needs rather than distributing only the items we have on hand.
