Many Families Hungry: Help the Family First Food Drive

December 4th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Time to get back into your pantry or to go in for the first time and pull out more food to donate! Families First is currently collecting food for the Brooklyn Family Justice Center. You can drop off the canned food in the box in their lobby, located at 250 Baltic St. between Court and Clinton. There are a lot of hungry people out there and many of them are the working poor. Demand is up everywhere and supplies and donations are down. Food pantries and organizations are in big trouble. Please help.

    All it takes is buy one extra jar of peanut butter, a bag of pasta or cereal from Trader Joes when you shop. We have an extra shopping bag from TJ’s and when filled up, we deliver it to one of the food banks. I was laid off in October, and believe me, if I can do this, so can you! There are alot of people struggling out there and can use a little bit of help! Please donate to our community!
