About the Community Food Bank of New Jersey
What started in 1975, by founder Kathleen DiChiara, out of the trunk of her car is now a 280,000 square foot warehouse distributing 23+ million pounds of food
and groceries to 750,000 low-income New Jersey residents in over 85% of New Jersey’s counties.

The Food Bank is seeking donations of non-perishable food items e.g. soup or cereal; feel free to bring an item or two if you wish.
