Help Community FoodBank of New Jersey ensure every New Jersey family has what they need for a special Thanksgiving meal. Join the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s 19th annual Turkey Drive!

Throughout the month of November, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey will host large-scale turkey distributions for each of the eight counties in its northern service area—enabling local food pantries and soup kitchens to pick up Thanksgiving turkeys for their hungry neighbors.   

Organizations that have placed holiday orders with the FoodBank will visit the designated pick-up sites closest to them to get roasters and frozen turkeys, which they will each distribute on their own schedules. The FoodBank works with more than 1,000 of these partners year-round, providing the food that enables them to serve neighbors in need in their communities. 

Last year, they gathered nearly 58,000 pounds of food and about 4,600 turkeys for our neighbors in need. Let’s make this year an even greater success!

Donate frozen turkeys and hams, as well as holiday trimmings, at a site near you on Saturday, November 23 and Sunday, November 24.
