Community FoodBank of New Jersey

Let's work together to put the “raise” in fundraising efforts!

Please join Petro in supporting the Community FoodBank of NJ.

Taking care of our local community is just as important to us as it is to you. That’s why Petro is proud to partner with the Community FoodBank of NJ to support our neighbors by helping them distribute food and groceries to nonprofit agencies throughout NJ.

Let’s help this great organization together! Petro will match your donations up to $250!*

You can make your donation now at: http://community.njfoodbank.org/petronj and we'll match whatever you donate up to $250 per fiscal quarter!*

Here's how your donation can help the Community FoodBank of NJ help our NJ neighbors:

  • As the state’s largest distributor of food and groceries to nonprofit agencies, this past year, the Community FoodBank of NJ distributed 39 million pounds of food and groceries to local children, the elderly and at-risk populations, as well as sponsor programs centered on job training, food stamps, and school supplies.
  • Help to feed more than 900,000 people each year via 1,500 member agencies in 18 of New Jersey’s 21 counties. 55% of those served are children and the elderly.
  • Food is donated, mainly by food industry partners (the Supermarket Gleaning Program and allocations from Feeding America) and emergency food programs, or it is purchased through various programs.
  • The Community Kitchen features a 14-week training program and produces meals for programs such as Kids Cafe’s, while providing essential job skills to break the poverty cycle. They trained close to 100 students, mostly second-chance individuals, in 2011 in our Food Service Training Academy.
  • The Kids Division helps feed nearly 2,500 children weekly, as part of its goals to improve the lives of children and break the cycle of poverty by providing classroom supplies, new clothing, and nutritious kid-friendly food.
  • Volunteers are the organization's lifeblood, last year volunteers made over 27,000 visits and donated more than 63,000 hours of service!
  • The Community FoodBank of New Jersey has earned Charity Navigator’s highest rating, four-stars, for sound fiscal management for the third consecutive year. Charity Navigator, America's premier independent charity evaluator, cited the Community FoodBank’s ability to efficiently manage its donors’ funds.
  • As chair of NJ VOAD (New Jersey Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) the Community FoodBank of New Jersey is a state leader in disaster recovery. They prepare meals, deliver cleanup supplies, bottled water and new clothing victims of disasters throughout the state at emergency evacuation shelters.
