Program of the Month
Food Bank

Did you go to bed hungry last night? Did you wake up hungry this morning? Are you unsure where your next meal is coming from? You probably did not answer "yes" to any of these questions. Sadly, more than 300,000 children in New Jersey could answer "yes" to all three. Food insecurity is painful, and disheartening, and it's on the rise.

We'd prefer to think that no one in our community is going without food – especially children. The truth, however, is troubling. Hunger affects many of our neighbors; working families, single mothers, the elderly, and a rapidly growing population – college students.

NORWESCAP Food Bank is dedicated to our mission of aiding in hunger relief, distributing more than 2 million pounds of food each year to more than 100 charitable organizations in Hunterdon, Sussex and Warren counties. We have been able to carry out our mission for more than thirty years because of our loyal, generous donors. We are concerned that the new proposed tax laws eliminating the deduction for charitable contributions will make people think twice about giving. We will have to wait and see what kind of an impact that will have on our program. Until we see proof to the contrary we are moving forward with full faith and confidence that our supporters will continue to believe in the work we do and will continue to be our partners in the fight against hunger in our community.

Thank you for all you have done and all you will continue to do for the greater good. Please visit our website and look at all the great things happening in September for Hunger Action Month.
