The Community FoodBank says thank you to the CME Group Community Foundation, which provides grant support for our Fresh Produce Initiative. In this Initiative, a partnership with the non-profit America’s Grow-A-Row in Pittstown, N.J., the FoodBank will receive at least 1 million pounds of fresh produce for distribution in 2015. This Initiative also will provide a day of hands-on nutrition education for more than 500 elementary-school children served by the FoodBank.
CME Group is the world’s leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, handling 3 billion contracts worth approximately $1 quadrillion annually. The CME Group Community foundation supports non-profit organizations in New York, New Jersey, Chicago and Houston–the communities where they live and work. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey is proud to have the CME Group’s partnership in providing fresh fruits and vegetables to those who rely on us for some of their groceries.
