Spirit of giving

foodbankbutton3

I’m joining Ron Coleman and Deb Smith of Jersey Bites in supporting The Community Food Bank in New Jersey.

I’ve seen more than a few news reports about how the economic situation in the NJ/NY area has forced a lot of families (who used to donate to Food Banks) to ask their neighbors for help. This year, contributing is very important.

From Deb Smith:

So, what can you do? It doesn’t get any easier, truly.

1. Make a monetary contribution: Visit http://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!

I try to get into the habit of using the “Check Out Hunger” coupons whenever I see them, but during the holiday season it helps to put some extra effort into donating food or cash. Remember, it’s especially important this year.
