A Time For Service
Our incoming President has helped transform this Martin Luther King day into a day of service. It signals the beginning of a new era of community service that is energizing our nation. A good place to start is by getting involved with charities such as the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
Food Donors annually contribute 56% of the 21 million pounds of food distributed by the FoodBank in the 2006 - 2007 fiscal year. This is a valuable contribution to our effort to fight hunger close to home. These donations enable the FoodBank to meet the food and nutrition needs of the hungry in their 18 county service territory.
