Host An INDIVIDUAL Food Drive

There is power in a community united – a sense of “oneness” that joins people together. More than 12 million pounds of food; 10 million meals have been distributed throughout South Jersey, with more than 69,000 emergency food boxes distributed since March 2020 alone.

None of this would have been possible without the power of the individual donor – supporting FBSJ’s mission to feed South Jersey.

The impact of a food drive can go even further virtually. Hosting a virtual food drive reaches more people to help more people right from a phone, tablet or computer. 

Virtual Food Drive:
The easiest way to reach the most people and have the most impact. Especially when every $1 donated provides 3 meals to South Jersey residents in need.
