ABOUT THE FOOD BANK OF SOUTH JERSEY
Marking its 36th year in 2021, the Food Bank of South Jersey (FBSJ) is the leader in providing safe and nutritional food to people in need throughout South Jersey. FBSJ distributes food, provides nutrition education and cooking courses, and helps food-insecure families and seniors find sustainable ways to improve their lives. Throughout 2020, with COVID-19 bringing school closures, stay-at-home orders, record-breaking unemployment and rising poverty, FBSJ distributed more than 22.5 million pounds of food – the equivalent of over 18.7 million meals – throughout its four-county region of impact: Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties, increasing its partner agency network to over 210 and serving over 95,000 food-insecure South Jersey residents each month. During 2020, the Food Bank of South Jersey distributed over one million emergency food boxes in direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic and elevated its child feeding program from approximately 300,000 children’s meals distributed during 2019 to over 950,000 children’s meals distributed to the region’s most food-vulnerable youths. FBSJ is a member of the Feeding America network of national food banks. Visit www.foodbanksj.org. On Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn, follow the Food Bank of South Jersey @foodbankSJ.
