Students Change Hunger (SCH) is a friendly competition where schools and youth community groups host food and/or fund drives at their schools to help feed our hungry New Jersey neighbors. Schools compete to donate the most food or funds to fight back against hunger in our state between September and January.
During the 2021/2022 SCH campaign, more than 171 schools and groups participated, donating more that 133,213 pounds of food and $71,364 to benefit New Jersey food banks. In total, these donated resources supported 325,103 meals for neighbors in need.
This campaign helps to meet the need in our communities and teaches students the power of advocacy and outreach. Students are the next generation of leaders, and when they come together to support their communities, great things are possible.
Mercer Street Friends oversees the SCH program within Mercer County.
Our partners throughout the state are:
