Working to end hunger in New Jersey
through education, advocacy and activism

Map the Meal Gap


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.
