The situation is dire, no more so than at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ), the largest food bank in the state, where requests for food have gone up 30 percent, but donations are down by 25 percent. Warehouse shelves that are typically stocked with food are bare and supplies have gotten so low that, for the first time in its 25 year history, the food bank is developing a rationing mechanism.
To really understand the serious need for donations, use the following link to view the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXH_aBJKcE4If everyone could just do a little, it would help those in need a lot. To help, you can:
- Make a monetary contribution: Visit www.njfoodbank.org.
- Donate food: Drop off a bag of food at your local food pantry. Click here to find a food pantry near you: www.sefan.org.
- Organize a food drive: We can help explain the logistics of starting a food drive. Just call 908-355-FOOD.
- Help "Check Out Hunger:" Look for the "Check Out Hunger" coupons at your local supermarket and donate. No donation is too small!

It was my best friend's 24th birthday and we figured what better way to celebrate than head to our favorite local dive bar. (Don't judge us, the drinks are free.)
After a long night out, I was up bright and early to participate in my first 5k. While it took me a littleeeee longer to finish than I would have liked (which might have had something to do with the bday bash the night before) I still had a great time with my co-workers and was happy to support such a great cause.
With Halloween approaching, it was time to carve our pumpkins. They turned out pretty good -- ours is the ghost!
