Agency Network

  • Our 150+ agency partners reinforce our mission to end hunger in communities across Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties. With our help, these agencies have access to millions of pounds of food to meet the needs of more than 196,000 people living in food-insecure households.
  • New partner agencies work directly with FBSJ from day one to gain all the necessary information for a successful partnership. From start to finish, FBSJ is there every step of the way to assist agencies. From learning about government initiatives like WIC and FamilyCARE, choosing a delivery program, acquiring grants and training for food safety and nutrition education, our partner agencies receive top of the line services when working with FBSJ. Services provided include:
    • Donated and purchased food programs
    • Technical and start up assistance
    • Strengthening of current programs
    • Grant opportunities
    • Training for food safety and nutrition education
    • Information about government initiatives including Food Stamps, WIC and FamilyCARE
    • Available food options for Halal and Kosher
  • Without their unwavering devotion to FBSJ, we would not be where we are today. If you are a non-profit organization within our service area and would like to partner with us, please complete this Partner Agency Application Packet. For more information, contact info@foodbanksj.org.

COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES

To our dedicated partner agencies, below outlines food distribution guidelines that focus on health and safety.

• All employees/volunteers must wash hands and sanitize
• Have hand sanitizer stations at entrances for volunteers
• Sanitize then rinse with water all surfaces before using
• When a sanitizer (like QUAT) is used to clean surfaces, it is supposed to air dry, not be rinsed with water

• Prepackage your dry product in boxes and frozen meats in plastic bags!
• Request boxes and bags through your Programs & Services representative

• No signatures at intake – volunteer writes ‘CV’ in the signature line
• Remember to maintain 6 feet of distance and write your clients’ required information on SFPP and TEFAP paperwork
• If on Oasis, follow the usual process but do not collect a signature. Limit the number of intake volunteers to as few as possible

The key will be controlling your pantry’s line:
• Place boxes and bags, enough for the individual client on a table
and step back 6 feet
• Limit groups to 10 people or less
• Clearly mark enter and exits on opposite side

Ultimately, aim to distribute directly into cars. Take intake with a clipboard from 6 feet away, have volunteers leave boxes next to car and allow the client to step out, load car themselves and drive off.

REMEMBER: Low to No Contact
