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.

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

As a founding partner since 1991, Kings is a proud partner of Community Food Bank of New Jersey’s Check Out Hunger® campaign. Every dollar helps to feed families in need throughout our community.  

In March Kings launched the CFBNJ Check Out Hunger® campaign in all stores as a special edition to help support and fill the food banks during the covid-19 crisis.  

With the generosity of our customers, Kings collected over $30K in donations to help local Food Banks.

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.

Kings in the Community

Impact beyond food donations. While our Act Against Hunger initiative plays a pivotal role in our community efforts, we don't stop there.
