About the Food Bank of South Jersey
The Food Bank of South Jersey (FBSJ) is based in Pennsauken, New Jersey and it exists to provide an immediate solution to the urgent problem of hunger by providing food to needy people, teaching them to eat nutritiously, and helping them to find sustainable ways to improve their lives. For the past 30 years, the Food Bank has provided relief to struggling families and vulnerable seniors who live in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties.
All of this is made possible because of partners like you. When you donate funds or food to FBSJ, you are making a genuine difference in people’s lives. For that, we say “Thank You!”
