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.
