Food & Water Watch works to ensure the food, water and fish we consume is safe, accessible and sustainably produced. So we can all enjoy and trust in what we eat and drink, we help people take charge of where their food comes from, keep clean, affordable, public tap water flowing freely to our homes, protect the environmental quality of oceans, force government to do its job protecting citizens, and educate about the importance of keeping the global commons — our shared resources — under public control.

Our current statewide work to protect clean drinking water includes resisting natural gas infrastructure like the proposed Port Ambrose Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) import-export facility off the Jersey Shore, pipelines through the NJ Pinelands conservation land, and the ongoing campaign against fracking, drilling for natural gas through a method of natural gas extraction with toxic consequences for drinking water.
We also work to move forward legislation to label Genetically Engineered or GMO foods.
Within the state of New Jersey, Food & Water Watch recently aided in the successful Stop the Sale campaign, preventing the privatization of the water works for the city of Trenton.
