New Jersey is a prosperous, and yet expensive place to call home. We believe no one should have to choose between a healthy meal and paying rent. For over 47 years CFA has helped fill the gap for working families trying to make ends meet. We invite you to partner with us as we Fight Hunger One Step at a Time!
My family is lucky, my children have never missed a meal or had to go to school hungry. I want them to appreciate what they have and learn to give back to those in need.
The mission of the Center for Food Action is to “prevent hunger and homelessness and improve the lives of individuals and families living in poverty.”
The Center for Food Action (CFA), founded in 1976, is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization that provides emergency services to northern New Jersey’s poorest and most vulnerable residents. CFA provides food, housing, utility, and heating assistance and offers counseling and advocacy services to low-income individuals and families. CFA is headquartered in Englewood and has sites in Hackensack, Mahwah, Ringwood, and Saddle Brook. In 2014, at the request of Bergen Community College, CFA opened a site on BCC’s Paramus campus in order to serve low-income students and their families.
Started by the late singer Harry Chapin and Bill Ayres as World Hunger Year New Jersey, the agency originally focused on the global causes of world hunger but within months of its start, it became evident that some people in our own community needed help in order to put food on their tables.
