Did you know that one in five New Jersey kids will miss more than one meal today? No one, especially a child, should miss a meal because their family cannot afford food. Too many families – including those with working parents – must choose between medicine and food; housing and food; or utilities and food.
The Community FoodBank of New Jersey aims to help families and children in New Jersey year-round.
On November 29, 2016, also known as Giving Tuesday, an anonymous donor has issued a $25,000 Giving Tuesday Matching Gift Challenge. For Giving Tuesday only, every gift to the FoodBank will be doubled up to a total of $25,000.
Monetary donations are particularly critical to the FoodBank because every dollar donated results in the ability to provide five meals for New Jersey’s hungry men, women and children. That means every dollar provides 10 meals on Giving Tuesday. Donations can be made at FeedNJkids.org.
