The Federation of New Jersey Food Banks challenges all students, staff, teachers and parents to think of those less fortunate throughout the school year by organizing a food drive at their school, beginning in mid-September through mid-November. New Jersey schools will compete with each other to collect as much food as possible for their local food bank. At the end of the challenge, schools that bring the most food will be presented with awards by their local food bank.
In 2014, 202 schools participated statewide and the New Jersey Federation of Food Banks raised over 162,000 pounds of food and $51,000 in monetary contributions!
Our 2015 year has just concluded, but please feel free to register for next year’s campaign.
