Five NJ CUs Partner Up to Collect Food Items for Local Community Through Kid-Friendly Food Drive

Five credit unions in southern New Jersey have joined together to collect donations of Kid-Friendly Food. When the school year ends, some children no longer have access to nutritious food. To combat this problem in their communities, a kid-friendly food drive started May 1 through July 31.

All credit unions requested donations of the most needed items which included peanut butter and jelly, canned pastas and soups, macaroni and cheese, pasta, cereals, oatmeal, pancake mix, granola bars, fruit cups, pudding cups, snack boxes of raisins and cranberries, and juice boxes.

Those participating include Bay Atlantic Federal Credit Union (aiding Salvation Army in Vineland), Campbell Employees Federal Credit Union (aiding Food Bank of South Jersey), Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union (aiding Community Food Bank of NJ Southern Branch), Members 1st of NJ Federal Credit Union (also aiding Community Food Bank of NJ Southern Branch), and Thunderbolt Area Federal Credit Union (aiding Help and Hope Ministries Food Pantry).
