To help eliminate hunger and malnutrition in the ftheir counties they serve in southern New Jersey?Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem.

CURRENT PROGRAMS Direct Delivery program ensures that donated food reaches hungry families and individuals living in rural areas of southern New Jersey. They provide weekly deliveries to 46 charitable feeding organizations with food they would not otherwise be able to distribute to their clients. Kids Cafe program provides at-risk children with a safe place to receive hot meals, nutrition education and enriching academic and recreational activities. In partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Gloucester County, it has expanded to three sites and benefits 160 children. Food Acquisition Project ensures that the FBSJ has greater access to the millions of pounds of surplus food that is thrown away each year. Because so much of the wasted food in their country is made up of fresh, healthy items like fresh fruits and vegetables, this initiative also helps improve the quality of food they distribute. Healthy, perishable items are especially critical for sustaining programs that feed vulnerable populations, such as children and the elderly. Fruit Basket project ensures that every after school or summer camp program has a consistent supply of fresh fruits so that children will have a healthy alternative for snack food. Along with the supply of fruit they will offer age appropriate mini nutrition classes to help children learn the benefits of healthy eating. FUTURE PROGRAMS Agency Capacity Expansion program is designed to strengthen the fragile network of charitable feeding programs to distribute more food safely and efficiently in under served communities. Utilizing internal resources and industry experts they provide training in food safety, inventory control, volunteer management, and fundraising and food acquisition methods. Operation Frontline is a national program administered locally is a nutrition education program that fights childhood hunger by teaching families how to make healthy and budget-wise food choices. With six different courses that target adults, teens and children, Operation Frontline takes a cooking-centered approach to nutrition education. Chefs and nutritionists volunteer to teach classes that feature hands-on meal preparation, basic nutrition, food safety, menu planning, food budgeting and healthy snacking. They are scheduled to launch this program in Fall 2007.
