The Federation of New Jersey Food Banks challenges all students, staff, teachers and parents to think of those less fortunate throughout the school year by organizing a food drive at their school, beginning Monday, September 17 through Monday, December 10.
New Jersey schools will compete with each other to collect as much food as possible for their local food bank. At the end of the challenge, the schools that bring the most food will be presented with awards by their local food bank.
During the 2017 Students Change Hunger Food and Fund Drive, 193 schools participated statewide, generating 144,234 pounds of food and $59,164 in monetary contributions!
Students Change Hunger 2018 will start on Monday, September 17 and extend through Monday, December 10. It’s early, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start collecting now!

As a reminder, all food dropped off to your local food bank before November 2nd will receive a 10% “early bird” weight bonus!
