“Hunger is a statewide epidemic in NJ”
Advocates and food pantry clients called for action to address the growing problem of hunger in the Garden State.
“We are seeing it (hunger) in suburbia. We are seeing it in urban areas. It’s really kind of an epidemic throughout the state,” said Adele LaTourette, New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition director. “I’ve been doing this for over 30 years and I have never seen or heard the stories that I’m seeing now.”
The advocates urged the state to revise the Heat and Eat program to help provide more food assistance for an estimated 160,000 households and to do a better job in processing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly called food stamps) applications.
Thank you for supporting CFA’s work to help local families and individuals who are struggling to manage food insecurity. Together we are making a difference!
