On Sunday, June 12th, we will once again be participating in the Annual Wheels-for-Meals, Ride to Fight Hunger. And this year the ride will be in person!
The problem of hunger in Northern New Jersey is not going away. Since the pandemic, it has gotten worse. JFCSNNJ has seen a 371% increase in monthly food pantry appointments and emergency requests. Kosher Meals-on -Wheels has delivered over 66,000 meals to seniors and homebound adults and our Corner Market Food Pantry serves over 900 families.
The money raised through the Wheels for Meals Ride to Fight Hunger helps these vital community programs continue. JFCSNNJ serves all members of our community regardless of ethnicity, religion or race.
I know that we are all bombarded with requests to fund worthy causes. This one hits home. The Wheels-for-Meals Ride to Fight Hunger funds LOCAL programs for LOCAL community members. JFCSNNJ is literally feeding our neighbors, our children’s classmates, and the seniors in our community. In order to continue providing these critical services, we need your help.
No donation is too small. Every dollar helps to keep people in our community fed. I hope you will consider making a donation, or, better yet, joining the team and riding (or virtually riding!) along with us.
Please share this with your friends and family so we can help as many people as possible.
Thank you for your generous support, we cannot do this without your help! Sue Ann, Joanie, and Ann
