Local restaurants are supporting the Food Bank of South Jersey.
The Food Bank of South Jersey invites the local community to participate in Dine Out for Hunger, a region-wide public awareness and fundraising campaign that unites restaurants and consumers in the fight against hunger.
Until Saturday, Sept. 29, participating restaurants will donate at least 10 percent of their proceeds to the Food Bank of South Jersey so that the organization can continue to feed children, families, seniors and veterans in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties.
Dine Out for Hunger is part of Hunger Action Month, a nationwide initiative that raises awareness about the nearly 40 million Americans facing hunger — including the nearly 200,000 people who are living in food-insecure households in South Jersey.
“Dine Out for Hunger is a great way to highlight that hunger is not only a global issue, but a local one as well,” said Joe Njoroge, Interim President & CEO, Food Bank of South Jersey. “The event brings the community together and encourages everyone to join the fight against hunger and help their food-insecure neighbors in South Jersey.”
Restaurant locations and the event flyer can be found https://foodbanksj.org/attend-an-event/dineout/. Participants must bring a copy of the flyer or show it on their phone at participating restaurants.
Participants can also use a coupon code for 5 percent off a takeout or delivery order at Expressgrub.com, an exclusive food delivery service sponsor. Use coupon code “FEEDSJ” and Expressgrub.com will make a donation to the Food Bank of South Jersey.
