Let’s Bag Food Insecurity– Help Feed our South Jersey Neighbors, Not Landfills 

On May 4, New Jersey’s plastic bag ban went into effect. Though a positive change for all of us and our beautiful state, this will be a large shift for us at FBSJ and our partner food agencies. Bags are used to easily and efficiently distribute essential items to our neighbors in need. Each year, we hand out more than 80,000 bags of groceries that’s a LOT of bags!

The Food Bank of South Jersey supports the bag ban as an important move towards environmental sustainability. However, as bags are so crucial to how we get items to food-insecure families, the state gave food banks and pantries an additional six-months to comply.

Over the coming months, we’ll be looking for help in securing reusable bags for our 200+ partner agencies for our joint outreach to individuals in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Salem counties.  We are sure our incredible community will aid us in meeting the needs of our neighbors now and into the future!  

How you can help: 

  • When you buy a bag for you, buy one for us! You can donate the bags to a local pantry or drop them off at one of our community partners listed below
  • Donate to FBSJ so that we can purchase bags for our partners
