Culinary Access Program
NJ is one of the wealthiest states in the US and, yet, hunger and stress from insufficient and inadequate food is found in all of the counties of the state. Hunger strikes your child's classmates, our elderly neighbors, and possibly people in your own family.
In urban areas, lack of food and nutritious options are an even a bigger problem. About 800,000 people in New Jersey face hunger every day. Approximately 200,000 of them are children. When they don’t have enough food to eat, they can suffer direct and dramatic effects on their physical development and mental well-being.
The Culinary Access Program is an initiative to enhance sustainable economic development, food security and nutrition in urban and peri-urban areas, and nearby rural spaces. It consists of a vast range of workshops, educational programs and initiatives developed and implemented in partnership with different stakeholders from academia, public agencies, and private individuals and entities.
