Food Bank of Old Bridge Receives Heartfelt Donation from Reformed Church Home
November 21, 2017 – Old Bridge, NJ – Following a month-long fundraising effort to benefit the Food Bank of Old Bridge, Reformed Church Home presented a check for $2038 to Old Bridge Mayor Owen Henry. During a celebratory reception also attended by Anahita Feltz, Food Bank Assistant, the Home donated several hundred pounds of nonperishable food for the organization’s use during the holiday season.
This year, RCH conducted the drive via several events, including a holiday craft sale, special breakfast and lunch offerings, a resident art sale, bake sale, and T-shirt sale, all part of the global “Stop Hunger” initiative. The project was coordinated by RCH staff members Lynne Meehan (Dining Services Director) and Marie Trezza (Development Director) to continue a tradition established at Reformed Church Home several years ago.
The Food Bank provides a variety of perishable and non-perishable items to help families in need of assistance. Located at the municipal complex in the “little red barn,” services are available to Old Bridge residents who qualify based on the income guidelines issued by the Federal Food Stamp Program (or SNAP). In order to receive assistance, you must be an Old Bridge resident and have applied for SNAP at the Middlesex County Board of Social Services, which can be reached at 732-745-3500.
