NMG launches November food drive to aid local communities

In conjunction with the Food Bank of South Jersey, locals can leave donations at businesses in Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties

Newspaper Media Group, publisher of The Sun Newspapers, is excited to announce it is holding its third annual holiday food drive!

In conjunction with the Food Bank of South Jersey, Newspaper Media Group has coordinated a list of local businesses throughout Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties where you can drop off food for those in need this holiday season.

The Newspaper Media Group food drive will last the entire month of November, and all donations collected will be given to the Food Bank of South Jersey, which will then distribute the items throughout the South Jersey community.

Donation bins will be set up at a number of businesses throughout South Jersey. To find a location near you, please see our ad in this edition of The Sun, or check out our website.

Among the most needed items for the Food Bank are canned meats (chicken, tuna, ham), canned meals (hearty soups and stews, pasta, chili), canned fruit, canned vegetables and breakfast items, such as hot and cold cereals, breakfast bars and complete pancake mix. Holiday items the Food Bank would especially appreciate are stuffing, macaroni and cheese, instant mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, pie crusts and canned pie fillings.

The Food Bank cannot accept previously opened containers, repackaged and homemade items, outdated products, or perishables –  i.e. breads, pies, cakes, produce, meat (fresh or frozen) or baby items. When choosing foods to donate, kindly consider the nutrient value so that our South Jersey children, adults and seniors are receiving healthy and nutritious meals year round.

Any donation, big or small, is much appreciated. Help us make the holiday season a little brighter for those in need in our community!
