Time to help the Hungry!

Let's all pitch in and help feed hungry families and children this summer! There's till time to join in the Northern New Jersey Business Council (BVC) summer food drive, which is called "Brown Bag Buddies." The BVC will be collecting food through July, and all food will be distributed through food pantries in Bergen County.

Kid-friendly foods most needed in the summer are: Canned Meat (tuna, chicken, etc.), Canned Vegetables, Macaroni & Cheese, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Cereal (low sugar kids cereal welcome), Dry Milk (e.g. boxed Parmalat), Canned Fruit, and 100% Juice.

If you'd like an organizational packet, which gives step-by-step instructions for organizing and promoting your Brown Bag Buddies campaign, call the Volunteer Center at 201 -489-9454 x 114 or email
