Southern New Jersey Credit Unions Host Kid-Friendly Food Drive

Credit unions in southern New Jersey have teamed up 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 will be held now through June 30. Most needed items are 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.

Donations can be dropped off at your local participating credit union. Those participating include Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union (aiding Community Food Bank of NJ Southern Branch), Bay Atlantic Federal Credit Union (aiding Salvation Army in Vineland), Members First 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). For more information, please contact any credit union participating in this much needed Kid-Friendly Food Drive.
