NJMEP and the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey (CIANJ) are launching their third annual food drive on Memorial Day Weekend. All the collected foods will be donated to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey as part of a special Manufacturing Cares project. This year, Employment Horizons is also participating in the food drive.
The three organizations are working together to rally manufacturers and the community at large to donate non-perishable food items at the organizations’ workshops, roundtables, and additional events throughout the summer and fall.
The food drive will culminate at the annual “Made in New Jersey” event in celebration of National Manufacturing Day on Friday, October 6th.
Donations are also accepted online at a virtual food drive set up by the Community Foodbank at http://support.cfbnj.org/goto/cianj-njmep16
Contributors can make donations on the site and see what kinds of food their donations will buy.
