COVID-19 Response

On behalf of Impact 100, our members, partners and grantees, we’d like to express our appreciation to all the healthcare professionals, emergency responders, educators, nonprofits, community organizations, volunteers, and our fellow neighbors for helping to take care of one another during these uncertain and challenging times.

Local nonprofits have been hard at work responding to the challenges that they are experiencing whilst continuing to provide essential services to those most in need. If you are looking for a way to help,  see below.

We have also created a COVID-19 Resources for Nonprofits page that organizations may find helpful.

Please visit this page regularly to see updates on community needs and ways you can help. If you have any questions, please reach out to us on

Donate to a Food Pantry


Several food pantries and soup kitchens have closed due to a lack of volunteers and fear of the coronavirus spreading, but the 136,000 people served by Fulfill, formerly the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, still need to eat…and we expect the number to grow.

To help meet the demand for food with thousands of meals no longer being prepared at these locations, Fulfill, the New Jersey Restaurant and Hospitality Association, and local restaurants are partnering to distribute food to people in need during this health crisis. Local restaurants will box single meals and Fulfill will pick them up and pay the restaurants a $5 per meal stipend. Fulfill when then distribute the meals through our network. Go to Fulfill to learn more on how you can help.

The Community Foodbank of New Jersey is continuing distribution, strategizing in real-time, and creating emergency meal kits.
