SCOTCH PLAINS — Assemblywoman Linda Stender invites area residents to join the fight against hunger by donating non perishable foods to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey this holiday season.
“As another holiday season approaches, we must all recognize the need existing within our very own neighborhoods,” said Stender (D-Union). “Now that my office is accepting food donations, I hope that residents in the surrounding area will step forward and contribute to the well-being of the less fortunate families in our community.”
Non-perishable items may be dropped off at Assemblywoman Stender’s Scotch Plains office located at 1801 East Second Street, Scotch Plains, Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Financial donations are also accepted and can be made payable to The Community Food Bank of New Jersey and mailed to Assemblywoman Stender, attn: community food drive, 1801 East Second St. 2nd flr., Scotch Plains, NJ 07076.
All donations are delivered to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey in Hillside. The Community Food Bank is one of the largest providers of groceries to charities, soup kitchens, and food pantries throughout the state, providing nutritious foods directly to individuals and families at risk of hunger. Donations of hearty, nutrient dense foods such canned tuna, peanut butter, canned meats, enriched cereals, soups and stews are encouraged. Contributors are asked to avoid glass containers due to risk of breakage.
