Welcome to Action Against Hungerâ„¢, a community service program administered by the Foundation of Northern NJ Inc., formerly known as North Jersey Media Group Foundation. The program runs the largest one-day food drive in the metropolitan area and has helped feed those in need in North Jersey since 1991.

Food drop-off locations

This Year's Food Drive will be held on Sunday, September 24, 2017 and we hope to raise over 100 tons of food.

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 2016 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 28 tons of food with an average retail value of over $118,394.32.*
