February 1st is "Souper Bowl" Sunday!
How will you measure the year?
"When your kids are eating toast for breakfast and pasta for dinner, you have to swallow your pride and reach out for help. It's terrible not having enough food for your kids."
Julie had been working as a caregiver for an elderly man for the past three years but lost her job when he suddenly became too sick and needed hospitalization. She's already set up job interviews, but in the meantime, CFA is here to help.
"My kids will be so happy when I get home with all this food. I really appreciate your help."
Julie and all of us at the Center for Food Action thank you. Your generosity has helped us distribute millions of dollars worth of food this year to people struggling to put food on their tables.
Your help is needed now so that we can continue this important work in 2015.
New Refrigerated Box Truck Will Help CFA Collect Fresh Foods
Through the generosity of the Bergen Highlands/Ramsey Rotary Club, Jen Maxfield Ostfeld and Scott Ostfeld and the Richard S. Wolfman Family Foundation, we now have a refrigerated box truck with a lift gate. This valued addition to CFA's vehicles will more than double our ability to pick up and safely transport a wide variety of fresh food items...equaling more meals on the tables of our poorest neighbors.
We are deeply grateful for the ongoing and generous support of the Bergen Highlands/Ramsey Rotary Club, Jen Maxfield Ostfeld and Scott Ostfeld and the Richard S. Wolfman Family Foundation.
Lets Grow Together!
#Letsgrowtogether. We're already preparing for next year's expanded CFA garden project! Our CFA Englewood onsite garden has nearly tripled in size and once again, we'll have two plots at Englewood's Third Street Community Garden. Thank you to Jen Anderson, of AJR Landscaping, for assuring the success of our garden initiatives by generously donating her expertise and time. We also want to thank CFA Board Member Deborah Klein, and her family, for making a generous donation in support of CFA's work to provide fresh and nutritious produce to our neighbors in need.
Welcome to Smile Packs
Smile Packs, a new CFA initiative, is designed to help encourage our young clients to exercise proper dental hygiene. With the support of four area dentists, we were able to add Smile Packs to the first delivery of the 2014-15 school year weekend snack packs to area elementary schools.
Thank you to Fair Lawn Dental Associates (Dr. Mahler), Edgewater Pediatric Dentistry (Dr. Rosalie Nguyen), Pediatric Dentistry, (Dr. Frank Scartozzi) and Prosmiles Cosmetic Dentistry (Dr. Lena Andriescu) for generously donating the first Smile Packs.
Will your dentist support our Smile Packs initiative? For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org | 201.569.1804 x28
