Time Warner Cable and the Bergen News are partnering again to host their annual Food Campaign to benefit the Center for Food Action. The Center for Food Action in New Jersey has been working with individuals and families in crisis for over 30 years to prevent hunger and homelessness. From their seven sites in Bergen and Passaic Counties, they provide emergency food, advocacy, rent and utility assistance for neighbors in need. This marks the 20th year Time Warner Cable and the Bergen News are collaborating on this community project.
“Our partnership with the Bergen News for the initiative has been tremendously successful in the past and we’re thrilled to host a food drive once again to benefit the Center for Food Action,” stated Barbara Kelly, Regional VP & General Manager, Time Warner Cable. “We encourage our customers, employees and the community to join us in celebration of our 20th year in helping those in need throughout our community.”
Food items requested include powdered milk, cold and hot cereal, canned pasta in sauce, canned meat, rice, peanut butter and jelly, canned fruit, toiletries and paper goods. A complete list of items can be found at www.cfanj.org.
The campaign runs from November 4th to November 20th, Monday to Friday, between 8:30AM until 5:00PM. All non-perishable grocery items are being collected at:
