In the 30 plus years that I've supported the Center in Mahwah, I've learned that even more important than the outstanding efficiency and integrity of the people who run CFA is the dignity accorded to the people they serve. There is a seamless flow from donor to recipient, and all are treated with respect.

CFA provides food packages for people that are struggling to make ends meet. Every year, demand increases, but somehow CFA manages to service ever increasing numbers. I can't imagine anything better than helping a mother feed her family or helping a senior get nutritious food. CFA provides a critical service to our area.

We are so lucky to have the Center for Food Action helping so many in our community. My organization, Companion Animal Advocates, provides monthly pet food deliveries to the CFA in Mahwah and Saddle Brook.

They are consistently a pleasure to work with - great partners. Their staff and
volunteers are always happy to see us and know that by helping their client's pets, we are also helping their clients.

Keep up the good work CFA!

I have attended CFA's wine tasting events for a few years and have to say they are very enjoyable. CFA does a fanastic job at making their donors feel welcome. The highlight of the events is when CFA explains it's mission and future goals, I feel so proud to be standing in the same room as these dedicated volunteers!

My experience with CFA started about 15 years ago through a charity outreach at work. Since then I have donated to their food drives and worked at at several fund-raising events. As a single mom of three children, I know first hand how being without can bring you down. The work that CFA does is both heart-warming and inspiring. It not only serves the community by providing basic needs and dignity, but CFA provides a way for all of us to give back. The staff is dedicated and professional. Although the economy is bad, hurting charitable contributions, and the number of families and individuals who need assistance is growing, CFA continues to reach out to ensure a good meal and to get them on their feet again..

Everyone at the Center for Food Action is so helpful and sensitive to the needs of others. There is always someone there to collect what is donated with a smile. The food is stored in an area that is pleasant, clean and organized. And when I have seen people there who are in need, they are always treated with dignity. The staff couldn't be kinder or more professional.

Companion Animal Advocates first came to the CFA in Mahwah early in 2008 with the idea of providing them with pet food for their clients on a monthly delivery schedule, they weren't at all sure if many of their clients even owned pets. To their credit, they were open to the idea and found that not only did many of their clients own pets, those people were thrilled that they could get pet food for their pets when they picked up their own food. CFA in Mahwah and Elmwood Park are truly feeding all members of the family now. Working with their staff each month as we coordinate these deliveries has been a joy. Both staff and volunteers deeply care about the people they serve.

South Presbyterian Church has had a long-standing relationship with the Center for Food Action. The administrative staff has always been accessible and willing to share information. The volunteers always greet you as if you were a long lost friend. They continously express great appreciation of all donations. And, in observation, clients are always served in a professional manner.

When our JCC's Hazon CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) was researching emergency food providers in order to invite an organization to collaborate with us in accepting the leftover & donated produce from our weekly distributions, the Center for Food Action in Englewood was our first choice due to their years of experience and excellence in serving the needs of our neighbors in need. After speaking with Irv and Jennifer it was clear to us that the organic, local and sustainable produce would greatly enhance the lives and wellbeing of their clients. Our CSA is proud to partner with CFA.
