We Can't Let This Bank Fail!

Friends,

Back in October I participated in the Novartis (my day job) Community Partnership Day where we spent a half-day at the Community Food Bank of NJ.  We sorted and packed food as part of their distribution network.  We were given a tour of the facility and met with some of their dedicated workers.  It is an incredible effort.  Believe it or not, there are still thousands of people in NJ who go hungry every day. Bruce Springsteen is heading a campaign to bring awareness and donations to this sad situation.  It's called "We Can't Let This Bank Fail." Today, December 15, over 100 NJ food bloggers are blogging ("Blogging Out Hunger") to bring attention to this plight.

Please watch this short video on the NJ Food Bank and please give generously if you can. Thank you.

  1. Great to have you on board and to meet another NJ Foodie.

    Thanks for the support. The FoodBank is a pretty incredibly organization, I agree.

    Happy Holidays
