In 2021, NJCNF is taking a place-based approach that will take a deeper dive into specific communities in New Jersey to strengthen partnerships, identify opportunities to fill gaps in child food access, and seed innovative collaborations.
NJCNF will focus on supporting access to healthy meals for children within the following communities:
- Atlantic County: Atlantic City, Hamilton
- Bergen County: Entire County
- Ocean County: Toms River
- Salem County: Entire County
- Warren County: Philipsburg
Equipment grants: To support existing and expanded programs and to facilitate partnerships, small equipment grants of up to $10,000 will be available for organizations participating in CACFP or Summer Meals or focus on providing meals for children outside of traditional school hours. For organizations expanding their program to serve more families, grants may increase to $10,000.
