Officials with a South Jersey food bank received a generous donation to help fight childhood hunger in the area.
On Tuesday, January 15th, officials with the Joy in Childhood Foundation, a charitable foundation powered by officials with Dunkin' and Baskin Robbins, presented a $7,500 check to representatives with the Community Food Bank of New Jersey Southern Branch (CFBNJ Southern Branch) to help support hunger relief efforts in the South Jersey area.
The money will go towards funding Food Bank programs, including the summer feeding program, that aim to provide meals to feed insecure children.
"Our kids that we do feed in this area are the hungriest children in the state of New Jersey," said Renate Taylor, development officer, CFBNJ Southern Branch, "and the help that Dunkin' and Baskin Robbins is offering to us is invaluable. We are thrilled and very grateful for this gift."
After presenting the check, volunteers from Dunkin' and Baskin Robbins helped sort and pack food items for families in need.
