Enhancity Partners with CFBNJ to Help Feed Our Community
CFBNJ engages, educates, and empowers all sectors of society in the battle against hunger and poverty. Working together with volunteers, donors, and partners, they work to fill the emptiness caused by hunger with Food, Help, and Hope. Each day, more than 1.2 million people in New Jersey face hunger, and nearly 400,000 of them are children. Children who don’t get enough nutritious food can suffer direct and dramatic effects on their physical development and mental wellbeing.
With the pandemic placing an even greater strain on families, most network food banks report a record increase in the number of people needing help, with an average increase of 60% across the country. Between March and June, roughly 4 in 10 people visiting food banks had not received food assistance before the pandemic. Planning ahead, we expect a supply gap of 8 billion meals needed to feed our neighbors. Join the Cause and Get Involved CFBNJ is the state’s largest anti-hunger and anti-poverty organization, and every contribution made to them helps get people the food they need. But there are many other ways you can get involved. Give Funds: Many of our neighbors have found themselves struggling for the first time due to layoffs, reduced work hours, and missed paychecks. Continued support is needed now more than ever. A donation of any amount helps! Give Food: A food drive is a powerful way to bring your community together and make a direct impact on the fight against hunger. Register your food drive and find resources to promote it to help provide nutritious food to our neighbors in need. Give Time: Get hands-on to make a difference!

Stay Informed: Stay informed of any updates to CFBNJ operations through their website and social media channels. Spread the Word: Together, we can help keep New Jersey fed, even during this time of crisis. Spread the word about CFBNJ’s mission to your friends, family, and colleagues. Get Your Company Involved: Your company can help raise funds for COVID-19 response and our year-round hunger relief efforts by matching employee gifts dollar-for-dollar.
