The Community FoodBank of New Jersey has officially kicked off the 2018 Students Change Hunger food and fund drive! Students Change Hunger is a friendly competition among school and youth groups to donate the most amount of food between September 17, 2018 - December 10, 2018 to help individuals and families in need. Registration is easy at our www.studentschangehunger.org website. Simply enter your school's or youth group's name to enroll in the food drive. You can download our free toolkit for a list of the "most wanted" food items as well as easy ways to host a food drive. Last year, our students donated more than 30,000 pounds of food to help children, teens and adults in need. We hope that you will join us this year in the fight against hunger.
Also, be sure to turn your radio up October 16, 2018 from 5:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. on Magic 98.3, WDHA 105.5, Classic WMTR and 1450 The Voice as they will be broadcasting live from our Hillside warehouse. You'll get to hear from our students at George Washington Elementary as well as some of our high school students.
