All Food Collections will be donated to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey Southern Branch. The organization assists charities serving up to 900,000 people in need per year. With the help of volunteers, corporations, foundations, churches, schools and community groups, they have distributed almost 400 million pounds of food and groceries valued at nearly one billion dollars since their incorporation.
“We so very much appreciate the support of the community through the Food Drives such as this. It is neighbors helping neighbors,” said Margie Barham, Executive Director of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey Southern Branch which locally serves Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties. The FoodBank’s mission is supported by the gracious donations of food, funds and of volunteers who give so much of themselves to help others.”
