I woke up to find a link to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey on one of my favorite blogs, and it really woke me up. I hadn’t really thought about how the economy was affecting food banks in New Jersey, which it is.
It’s really easy to donate when you are checking out at the grocery store, just by saying Yes, I’ll give a dollar or whatever. There are also boxes at all the groceries stores where you can drop off food. Anyhow, here’s what you can do:
1. Make a monetary contribution: Visit www.njfoodbank.org.
2. Donate food: Drop off a bag of food at your local food pantry.
3. Organize a food drive: We can help explain the logistics of starting a food drive. Just call 908-355-FOOD.
4. Help “Check Out Hunger:” Look for the “Check Out Hunger” coupons at your local supermarket and donate. No donation is too small!
In Morristown, places that could use your help include the Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown, and the Interfaith Food Pantry. Thanks to the Jersey Bites blog for putting this blog campaign together today. Also check out the list of New Jersey Blogs that are posting today about this.
