Blogging Out Hunger: We Can't Let This Bank Fail!

Posted Dec 08 2008 9:16am 2 Comments

Community-food-bank-of-new-jersey My blogging friend and fellow Jersey Girl Deborah Smith of JerseyBites.com is coordinating a blogging campaign on behalf of The Community Food Bank of New Jersey.

This Bank Can't Fail is scheduled to launch December 15th.

The goal is to get 100 New Jersey bloggers spreading the word about the desperate need that The Community Food Bank of New Jersey is in due to the increased demands being put on New Jersey food pantries.

Why?

Because, blogging can be a beautiful thing and the keyboard is mightier than the sword, or something like that.

You from Joisey - did I mention, Bruce Springsteen is doing his part to help?

EXCELLENT!

Please, consider joining our campaign and my friend Debbie promises it won't hurt.  She has some really cool graphics (see above) and content information to make "getting involved" as easy (and painless) as possible.

As of today (12/8/08) we've got 63 bloggers on board and this would be a good time for you to grab a hot cup of coffee, tea, or something cool to drink.

Feel free to pass along this post and, if everyone could do a little, it would help those in need a lot.  To help, people can:

1)  Make a monetary contribution: Visit www.njfoodbank.org.

2)  Donate food: Drop off a bag of food at your local food pantry.

3)  Organize a food drive: The CFBNJ can help explain the logistics of starting a food drive. Just call 908-355-FOOD.

4)  Look for the "Check Out Hunger" coupons at your local supermarket and donate. No donation is too small!

I encourage all Jersey bloggers to email Debbie at Jerseybites@gmail.com and join the campaign, or even consider joining the Community FoodBank of New Jersey group on Facebook.

Why?

Because, nice matters and hunger sucks!

The end.

Great post and blogging purpose! I live in San Francisco and the SF Food Bank is in a similar situation. Hopefully, bloggers everywhere will do the same for their community food banks. Bloggers unite!

Hi Kathleen,

I was in San Francisco (for the first time) in July, during the BlogHer Conference 2008 - you are absolutely right, due to the economic situation, there are cities in need all over the nation.  Bloggers unite, indeed!
