The holiday season is approaching and food pantries in New Jersey are appealing for donations.
Julienne Cherry with the Community Food Bank of New Jersey says many residents can’t afford to buy the food their families need.
“In the state of New Jersey we still have one million people that are food insecure. And of that almost 300,00 of them are kids, and that’s one in seven kids. So, the need is still there. For every dollar that someone donates we’re able to actually provide three meals.”
Cherry is appealing for donations of turkeys and supplies.
