Ask your business, place of worship, school or school group to support CFA and #GivingTuesday by organizing a Hearty Soup Drive.  Ask everyone to bring in just one or two cans of Hearty Soup!!!

Identify a location to collect the soup, start collecting,  then bring what's collected to CFA on or after #GivingTuesday. Let us know if you need a pick-up.  

Remember to take your #UNSELFIE and use #Unselfie #GivingTuesday and post to FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, @centerforfoodaction, and TWITTER or send to jenniferjohnson@cfanj.org for posting.  Call with questions:  201.569.1804 x28.  LEARN MORE ABOUT #GIVINGTUESDAY

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.  

We welcome all seasoned and new gardeners who are interested in helping manage and continue to expand our gardens. Contact Jen at jen@ajrlandscaping.com or call CFA: 201.569.1804 x28More

 

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: jenniferjohnson@cfanj.org | 201.569.1804 x28
