Throughout the past years, Cornucopia, and its dedicated team of volunteers, have had a major impact on growing local, organic, healthy, and safe food in New Jersey and beyond. It has been passionately involved in informing, educating, presenting, archiving, advocating, and when necessary, protesting.
Some of its core concerns and issues are as follows: organic food, local food production, composting, recycling, waste disposal, genetically modified foods, climate change, certified organic standards, labeling of food, toxic fertilizers, community supported agriculture, farmers markets, vegetable gardens - and Monarch butterflies. CNNJ has been on the forefront of environmental issues that relate to healthy and safe food produced in live soil, pure water, and clean air.

Now in its vintage years, Cornucopia is less active, but continues to pursue its mission via the Northeast Earth Coalition (NEEC),
founded by Cornucopia Board member and officer, Jose German. This amazing organization works at the community level to protect the environment and promote local sustainability and food security as it brings together diverse environmental organizations in the Northeast to share ideas, identify common interests, and provide mutual support.
