Blogging Out Hunger

MoreMonmouthMusings is excited to participate in the 2nd Blogging out Hunger campaign to help raise awareness and donations for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. The campaign is lead by the JerseyBites blog.

Two years ago when we spearheaded the first ever “blog burst” (as they are sometimes called) we really didn’t know what to expect.  Needless to say,we were amazed by the enthusiasm and eagerness by so many bloggers to get involved.  By the end of the day of December 15th, we had over 122 bloggers who had posted about the Community FoodBank’s desperate need for donations.

This year, we are hoping for even more bloggers to jump on board and help us spread the news about the 20th Anniversary of the FoodBank’s “Check out Hunger” campaign which is going on now through December.  Check-Out Hunger is an annual awareness campaign and fund raiser for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey which actually began in New Jersey and is now run at supermarket chains across the northeast.  I know you have seen those tickets at the check out counters of your local grocery stores. Please don’t ignore them. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey reports that need for nutritious food is up 30-40 percent at its partner agencies (soup kitchens, pantries, shelters, etc) this year.

In 2009 Check-Out Hunger crossed the $2 Million plateau for the first time. The campaign raised $2,093,086 for food banks across the state. Since 1992, millions of people have supported the program at food markets and online at www.checkouthungernj.org.

Participating food markets include A&P, Food Basics, Foodtown, Kings, Pathmark, Shop Rite, Super Fresh, Wawa, and Wegmans.

Please make it a point to donate during the Holiday Season to the Check Out Hunger campaign.  With so many New Jersey residents out of work, this season is going to be particularly hard on families and demanding on the hunger relief programs in our state.

Also, please visit the blogs below to check out their “Check out Hunger” posts.  This list will continue to grow as the day goes on. So, feel free to check in often.  And, Bloggers, feel free to jump on board even if you didn’t commit to participate.  Just send a link to your post to info (at) jersey bites.com and we’ll get you listed.
