394,200 children in New Jersey are living in food insecure households. In Bergen County, when the school year ends, so does much needed nutritional support for thousands of children. But there is good news; we have the power to change these statistics.
Brown Bag Buddies' summer snack bag program kicks off June 1, 2015-July 23, 2015. The drive collects breakfast and lunch snack bags and distributes them to children of low-income families through the Center for Food Action. Be part of the solution and start a drive in your office! We have toolkits and resources to help you get started.
Many of our community's low income families that visit local food pantries don't have consistent access to fresh produce. We want to dig in and make a change! In addition to the summer snack bags, we are partnering with MEVO and Table to Table to help YOU give these families access to fresh produce.
As a corporate sponsor you will have the opportunity to plant seasonal vegetables at MEVO's Mahwah farm July 30, 2015 and harvest the crop on September 16, 2015. The harvest will be donated and distributed to Bergen County families through Table to Table.
Your sponsorship is needed to help make this happen! See our new sponsorship levels and learn how you can double your impact.
ONE initiative, FOUR nonprofits, A lifetime of change.
