Captain’s Table VIP Reception
At The 2018 Atlantic City Boat Show
Thursday, March 1, 2018 • 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Atlantic City Convention Center
The Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Southern Branch (CFBNJ-SB), the state’s largest provider of donated food to hundreds of partner charities serving the emergency food needs of the poor throughout the state, and ‘Let Us Eat, Please,’ a summer feeding program helping to ensure that poor kids get enough to eat over the summer months while out of school, depend heavily on the generosity of our friends and supporters to help keep those in need fed.
Childhood Food Insecurity by county in our area:
Atlantic County 19.3% of children are food insecure
Cape May County 19.8% of children are food insecure
Cumberland County 18.2% of children are food insecure
What we do:
-CFBNJ-SB distributed 1.4 million pounds of food last month, a 45% increase over October 2016
-CFBNJ-SB went from serving 700 families a month to over 1100 from this time last year
-‘Let Us East, Please,’ every two weeks over the summer, saw that 810 families and their 2,300 children, identified by the schools as needing assistance, received a 30 pound box of groceries, valued at more than $40, at no cost to them
All of this means just one thing… in the face of such increasing need, we are seeking help from our community.
We are planning a unique event, designed to provide some of the funds needed to help us make a positive difference in the lives of those less fortunate. We hope you will consider being a sponsor and/or joining us at our Captain’s Table event at the Progressive Insurance Company’s Atlantic City Boat Show at the Atlantic City Convention Center on Thursday, March 1, 2018, from 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
