The Bergen County Food Security Task Force was formed in 2020 due to the skyrocketing need caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, we have worked to pursue our mission to create a more resilient network of emergency food providers by supplementing pantry distributions, building relationships between partners, and investing in vital infrastructure.
The Food Security Task Force also recognizes that food insecurity is often a symptom of a larger issue such as homelessness, unemployment, or disability. To ensure food pantries are equipped to holistically serve individuals facing food insecurity, the Task Force provides access to external resources such as rental assistance, affordable child care, job training, and mental health counseling.

While the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles were making their final preparations for the big game, the students of the Bergen County Technical School District were hard at work collecting cans of soup for local food pantries. Together, the students were able to collect over 3,000 cans of soup!
