This year, along with a group of New Jersey bloggers spearheaded by Jersey Bites, Off The Broiler is again proud to participate in the Community Food Bank of New Jersey’s annual donations drive to help eliminate hunger in our state.
In 2009 Check-Out Hunger crossed the $2 Million plateau for the first time. The campaign raised $2,093,086 for food banks across the state. Since 1992, millions of people have supported the program at food markets and online at www.checkouthungernj.org.
Please make it a point to donate during the Holiday Season to the Check Out Hunger campaign. With so many New Jersey residents out of work, this season is going to be particularly hard on families and demanding on the hunger relief programs in our state. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey reports that need for nutritious food is up 30-40 percent at its partner agencies (soup kitchens, pantries, shelters, etc) this year.
