What's It Worth?
For every dollar that you donate, many pantries can buy $11 worth of food using wholesale discounts. Please help us reach the more than 200,000 households that depend on food supplied by our state's food pantries (Anti-Poverty Network of New Jersey, 12/05).

What We Have Done With Your Help

In 2014 alone, thousands of our hungry neighbors were fed through our support of Table to Table, and our Action Against Hungerâ„¢ Food Drive which brought in approximately 41 tons of food with an average retail value of over $178,826.25.*

The Foundation also donated over $125,000 to local charities, individuals and initiatives.

Your generous donation can ensure that we continue to help our New Jersey neighbors who need it most. Unlike most other nonprofits, the North Jersey Media Group Foundation's expenses are fully paid for by a private company (North Jersey Media Group). North Jersey Media Group - not the public - pays for all of our Foundation's administrative and overhead expenses.
