Feeding America's latest Map the Meal found that 11 percent of NJ residents faced hunger in 2015. 

That translates to about 971,000 people. Of those, only about one-third qualified for food assistance through NJ SNAP (food stamps) and other nutrition assistance programs. New Jersey households fell $530 million short of what they needed to buy enough food for every member of their household.
