NJSFWC partnering with Somerset Patriots for Food Drive

To help fill the shelves of the local pantries, the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC) kicked-off its Operation: Peanut Butter, Jelly and Beans project in late March 2012. The goal of the project is to collect 1 million pounds of non-perishable food items for the local pantries and other local feeding agencies by June 30, 2012. Clubs were encouraged to partner with other local organizations on this very important and necessary project. The food collected locally will remain in the local communities. New Jersey TODAY, the FoodBank Network of Somerset County (one of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s member agency) and the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs are partnering to help feed the hungry of Central Jersey. Plan to attend the Somerset Patriots-Camden Riversharks baseball game on Friday May 25th at the TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater. Those attending are asked to bring non-perishable food items with them to the game as a donation. The FoodBank Network has secured a block of tickets with each ticket selling for $10. The FoodBank Network will receive $5 for every ticket they sell from their block. Call Marie Scanell at 732-560-1813 if you are interested in purchasing tickets.
