Zwicker Launches Food Drive to Benefit Local Pantries

Donations to Support Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex and Somerset County Food Banks

            (SKILLMAN) – The legislative office of Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker is collecting non-perishable food donations to help those in need.

            Interested parties may bring items to the office, located at 23 Orchard Road, Suite 170, Skillman, through Dec. 13. Donations will go to Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex and Somerset County food banks.

            “Some of the men and women facing hunger in New Jersey are strangers, and others are neighbors, classmates, friends and co-workers who take painstaking steps each day to hide that they are in need,” said Zwicker (D-Hunterdon/Mercer/Middlesex/Somerset). “Regardless of whether or not we know them personally, they are part of our community. This food drive is an opportunity not just to provide a meal for those dealing with hardship but also to remind these individuals and their families that we care.”

            Suggested items include: stuffing, canned turkey gravy, canned cranberry sauce, canned sweet potatoes/yams/white potatoes, boxed mashed potatoes, boxed rice, boxed cornbread muffin mix, boxed brownies and cake mixes, cereal, oatmeal, coffee, peanut butter and jelly, healthy snack foods, boxed milk, noodle/rice mixes, boxed macaroni and cheese, pancake mix and syrup, boxed chicken broth, Jell-O, instant pudding and canned soup. Sugar-free and gluten-free items are greatly appreciated.
