ABOUT US

OUR INSPIRATION

About Us

Outstanding product, grass-fed local beef, and the purest fish in the world, hand-selected from our expert purveyors. We've supported innovative entrepreneurs who are changing the food industry with new flavors, new techniques, and mission-driven products. We're Jersey born and bred— and proud of it. Supporting the local economy— through the people we hire, initiatives we support, and quality products we source— is in our DNA.

But at the core of it all you’ll find our customers; the source of our inspiration since 1936. You still are, over 80 years and 25 stores later. Kings Food Markets. Bringing you the most extraordinary food in America— and the globe.

“In our busy lives, we have a million things competing for our attention— and let’s face it, food shopping is no exception. That’s where we come in, emerging from the fog with clarity on what matters most to you: superb quality. In everything we sell, source or handpick from our purveyors, we embrace the freshest, finest and most delicious available.”

Person donating food
Kings Act Against Hunger

Access to affordable, nutritious food should be a right: not a privilege. But in many communities, obtaining the healthy foods needed to live— and better yet, thrive— is out of reach.

In New Jersey, nearly 900,000 people are “food insecure,” defined as the lack of access to affordable, healthy food. Through our Act Against Hunger initiative, we’re making an impact in the communities we serve. Along with our customers and partners, we’ve donated over 152,000 pounds of food to hunger relief efforts in New Jersey, Long Island and Connecticut, providing over 18,000 meals to people in need.

Food Bank Partnerships
State and Local Food Bank Partnerships

We collect over $150,000 annually, with the help of our generous customers, through Community Food Bank of New Jersey's Check-Out Hunger® initiative. As a founding partner to this initiative since 1991, we're proud of our long-standing relationship with CFBNJ, along with local food banks, such as MEND and Interfaith Food Pantry.

Grow it Green Morristown

Local, organic, sustainable. Grow it Green lives by these words— and have for 10 years. Seeing a need in their Morristown community for a love of gardening, a desire to connect to the natural world and a need for accessible, fresh food, they turned an abandoned lot into a vibrant community garden. This garden is now part of an ecosystem that includes New Jersey’s largest public school garden, a greenhouse, CSA and more. Kings is proud to be the exclusive partner of Grow it Green.

Kings Feed a Child Today table with donation bags
Feed a Child Today

300,000 schoolchildren go to bed hungry in New Jersey, on any given night. For many of them, a school lunch may be the only hot meal they’ve eaten all day. While many welcome the weekend as a respite, it’s a challenge for families with limited food access— children can go for days without a hot, nutritious meal. In response, we proudly launched our Feed a Child initiative, in which customers can purchase pre-assembled donation bags that are distributed directly to schools via local food banks.

Thanksgiving Turkey Donations

Every year, we donate over 2,500 turkeys to more than 20 food banks and organizations, working with our partners to distribute them to those in need. We’re honored to make a difference, ensuring that families in need can celebrate Thanksgiving.
