HILLSIDE, NJ - The Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ), the state's largest anti-hunger and anti-poverty organization, was awarded a grant of $635,994 from Feeding America in April, helping to continue the FoodBank's statewide aid efforts amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. These funds, part of a personal donation of $100 million from Amazon CEO and philanthropist Jeff Bezos, have been instrumental to CFBNJ in its efforts to continue to serve neighbors in need, helping to further daily operations for the FoodBank during this difficult and uncertain time.
“Contributions from generous donors like Jeff Bezos are more important to our nation’s food banks now than ever before,” said Carlos Rodriguez, President & CEO of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. “The entire team at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey is so proud of the record-breaking work we have been able to do during this pandemic, feeding so many New Jersey residents in need. Of course, none of what we do would be possible without the incredible help generous donors provide, and we are both grateful for and humbled by all the support we have received over the last few months.”
