Students Change Hunger is a school-based, statewide food drive competition which provides an opportunity for students, parents, teachers and staff to help those less fortunate by collecting food and/or funds for their local food bank. Schools are categorized by the size of their student population and compete against one another in an effort to alleviate hunger. The top schools in each division are given special awards at the end of the campaign. In addition, one school is given the top prize, The Governor’s Cup—an award endorsed by Governor Phil Murphy, for the school that displays the most spirit, leadership, and active participation throughout the competition.

Here's How it Works:

This year schools throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties will be collecting food and donations from Mid-September through mid-December. Join us for the campaign’s 13th anniversary! Last year 67,336 pounds of food and $44,256 in funds were collected by 72 schools in Monmouth and Ocean Counties representing over 50,000 students. This brings the new total to more than 756,000 pounds raised and over $262,000 raised since the initial start of the program in 2007. Together we can top last year! It’s not too late to register your school!
