Our Summer Food Drive Has Begun!
Kids Summer Meals & Snacks
School’s out, but hunger isn’t. What are we doing to help local kids?
Hoboken Family Alliance is teaming up with Whole Foods Markets in Edgewater, NJ to conduct a summer food drive for the month of June.
When school’s out for summer vacation, children living in poverty stop receiving free meals Monday through Friday at school and face hunger at home. Often their parents work in low-wage jobs or they are unemployed.
We would like to ensure that children in low-income areas in Hoboken continue to receive nutritious meals during long summer vacations when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast. Food will be distributed to local children in need.
We would like to invite you to assist us with helping curb hunger by visiting Whole Foods to donate, or give a financial contribution.
Donate via Paypal Here:
Any funds donated will go 100% to purchase food for those in need.
Our drive will be running at Whole Foods until June 30 for distribution to families within Hoboken.
If you would like to donate in person while shopping at Whole Foods, suggested Donations would include non-perishable, nutritious, kid-friendly, shelf stable food to sustain them over the summer break.
The following is a list of suggested non-perishable items for purchase at Whole Foods include:
Whole Grain Cereal
