This year we celebrate once again our exciting partnership between The Battle Against Hunger and the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey Jubilee Office, as we look to build upon the reach and success of last year’s event. The Jubilee Office, with its associated 21 Jubilee Ministry Centers, is just one of the ways the Diocese of New Jersey addresses domestic poverty. These Jubilee Ministry Centers empower the poor and oppressed in their communities by providing, among other things, direct services such as Food Pantries that provide culturally appropriate perishable and non-perishable food, and volunteers who plant, harvest and distribute fresh vegetables grown in their parish gardens. Most importantly, they also advocate for human rights and social justice. We welcome the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey, its 21 Jubilee Centers and its congregations to our ever-growing BAH family, as we join forces to combat hunger in more and more communities throughout New Jersey!
The Battle Against Hunger is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising public awareness about hunger and assisting those who provide services to those in need. Over the past twelve years, we have raised over $800,000 for hunger relief! Please join us as we continue our quest to raise awareness and funds.
What began as a dream in 2003 to help feed the hungry with funds from a small bike tour has blossomed into a non-profit organization dedicated to raising public awareness about hunger and assisting those who provide services to those in need. Please join us as we continue our quest to raise awareness and funds to help fight the battle against hunger!
The 2014 BikeTour was a huge success! We broke the “century” mark, as 58 riders traveled within a 200-mile route, accompanied by 55 Support and Gear (SAG) team members, raising over $100,000.00 as well as public awareness of the hunger problem in our area! The walkers at our first annual George & Kinney’s Walk held concurrently and the We Care Walk held on Sept. 20th in Perth Amboy, NJ also contributed to this effort.
