ANNUAL TURKEY DRIVE TO PROVIDE FOR NEW JERSEY NEIGHBORS IN NEED


FoodBank and Partner Agencies Will Collect Food to Provide Thanksgiving Meals

(HILLSIDE, NJ—November 18, 2019) Close to 900,000 New Jersey neighbors struggle with hunger and may not have the means to afford a holiday meal this year.

To ensure that hungry families have what they need for a happy Thanksgiving, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey has purchased more than 25,000 turkeys and roasters and will receive even more at its 19th Annual Turkey Drive the weekend before Thanksgiving.

FoodBank staff, volunteers, and partner agencies will collect turkeys and other holiday food items at nearly 50 supermarkets, churches, and other sites throughout New Jersey on Saturday, November 23 and Sunday, November 24. Last year, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey received nearly 58,000 pounds of food and over 4,600 turkeys thanks to the generosity of those who donated.

The FoodBank’s most-needed items include frozen turkeys and hams, roasters, canned vegetables, gravy, cranberry sauce, and stuffing. Food and fund donations put meals on the tables of those who might otherwise go without during this special time of year. For more information and to find a turkey drive site near you, please visit cfbnj.org/turkey.
