Our Annual Strike Out Hunger Event which was developed in order to call attention to, and do something about, the nearly 400,000 food insecure children in New Jersey. On June 27, 2017 we will bring together businesses, teams and individuals to pack healthy meals which will be sent to area food banks to keep them stocked during the summer months. Why the summer? We have learned that children who are receiving free breakfast at school sometimes go hungry during the summer months.
You can support us by putting together a team (it’s a fun team building activity!!) Due to the growth in this event over the last two years, we are very excited about moving to a larger venue, Sun National Bank Center! We are going into our third year for this event and we have seen great success. From 300 participants packing 75,000 meals in 2015, to 600 participants packing 100,000 meals in 2016 our goal for 2017 is to have 800+ participants pack 200,000 meals. And we know we are making a difference! Food banks are now coming to us in order to be sure we will be providing them with these much needed meals.
