The hunger relief organizations of New Jersey are challenging all students, staff, teachers and parents to think of those less fortunate this year by organizing a food drive at their school, beginning in mid-September through mid-November.
The Federation of New Jersey Food Banks is collaborating on a state-wide effort entitled Students Change Hunger. This food drive will serve as a competition, for schools from pre-school through college throughout the state. The challenge centers on each school collecting food to help the hungry of NJ.
Each school must nominate and register a non-student Coordinator, such as a teacher, parent, club advisor or PTA member, who will communicate directly with the FoodBank. The Coordinator will oversee and organize all aspects of the Students Change Hunger at their school. Coordinators must submit a completed Registration Form and agree to the SCH Rules.
In addition, schools are competing with same-sized schools across the state for recognition!
