Atlantic County Bar Association Virtual Fundraiser

According to a recent Monmouth University poll, the coronavirus outbreak has made a major impact on the lives of 7 in 10 New Jerseyans (71%). This percentage is larger than 62% of all Americans who feel the same. Additionally, the COVID-19 impact on the South Jersey economy could be more than $5 billion.

Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties – the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Egg Harbor Township location service areas – have some of the state’s highest rates of child food insecurity: 17.9% in Atlantic, 17.6% in Cape May and 17.9% in Cumberland. We have served three times as many first-time clients than we typically do during this unsettling time. We have experienced a 55% decrease in food donations, coupled with a 60% increase in demand.

The FoodBank can’t do it alone. With your help, we can reach more families during this uncertain time. Your gift makes a difference.  

It will take the goodness and generosity of others to truly make a difference in the lives of struggling New Jerseyans during the pandemic and all year long.

Thank you and be well.
