Launched in 2011, The New Jersey Food for Thought Campaign is led by Hunger Free New Jersey and is driven by a statewide coalition committed to combating childhood hunger.
This effective partnership of state agencies, including the New Jersey Department of Agriculture, health, wellness and education organizations, municipal government, child advocates and others has resulted in many more children receiving the nutrition they need to grow, learn and thrive.
The coalition works to build statewide support for the expansion of federal child nutrition programs through outreach and communications. Our primary state partner is the New Jersey Department of Agricuture. National partners are the Food Research & Action Center and the American Dairy Association Northeast.
