A virtual tasting event hosted by Little Water Distillery features their fine sprits, as well as craft beers from three local breweries, to benefit Let Us Eat, Please and CFBNJ.

Let Us Eat, Please was founded by late James L. Cooper when he learned from his daughter, a teacher, about our New Jersey children who regularly attended school hungry. Jim, who had already devoted much of his time advocating for community, civil rights, and philanthropic causes, formed ‘Let Us Eat – Please’ just after his 82nd birthday. Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law is grateful and pleased to be in a position to continue the work of ‘Let Us Eat – Please’ in memory and honor of its founding partner.

Starting with just one school district, the ‘Let Us Eat – Please’ program has expanded each year to include additional area districts. Every two weeks over the course of summer, families, identified by the school as needing assistance, receive a 30-pound box of groceries, valued at more than $40, at no cost to them. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, 93,000 residents of Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland Counties are projected to be food insecure, including 32,130 children (1 in 4).
