For too many in South Jersey, food insecurity is something that prevents them from being able to enjoy a holiday meal with their families. In fact, nearly 200,000 individuals face food insecurity in South Jersey everyday. This includes children, seniors, veterans and families, who are faced with the decision of having to spend a hard-earned paycheck on bills or food, but with your help this November, they don’t have to make those decisions.
Join us November 15th at Viva South Jersey as we embark on a festive night filled with live entertainment, refreshing cocktails and delicious food aboard the iconic Spirit of Philadelphia. All proceeds will go toward the Food Bank of South Jersey’s hunger relief programs, ensuring that children get the nutritious food they need. Tickets can be purchased at foodbanksj.org/vivasj
As we move closer to Thanksgiving, help a family in need by hosting the holiday meal they weren’t planning to have by dropping off a frozen turkey at the Food Bank of South Jersey’s Turkey Drop in Pennsauken on Saturday, November 17th. Add the essential fixings for a superb feast, such as cranberry sauce, stuffing, or mashed potato mix. Visit foodbanksj.org/turkeydrop to learn more.
Your donations and participation will create countless meals that any family will feel truly “thankfull” to eat.
