Speaker Coughlin Introduces Anti-Hunger Bill Package

Speaker Craig Coughlin today announced the introduction of an anti-hunger bill package which addresses food insecurity and tackles the issue of hunger in New Jersey. The bills specifically address the reduction of food waste and food deserts, helping farmers, the provision of resources and information to the general public and food insecurity among students enrolled in public institutions.

“Too many residents in the state of New Jersey go to bed without a meal every night – 1 out of every eight residents to be exact,” said Speaker Coughlin. “No family should have to choose between paying their bills and eating a nutritious meal. The bills introduced will help steer us in the direction of reducing food waste, donating food to markets in need and combating food insecurity.”
