“Inflation, disproportionately high living costs in this region and continued concerns about Covid are just a few of the arduous factors contributing to Northern NJ’s alarming food insecurity,” says Ilene Isaacs, Executive Director of Table to Table. “Bag a Lunch, Help a Bunch is an easy way for individuals, schools, and companies to be a part of the solution. By donating what you’d spend on lunch for a day, week, or more, our hungry neighbors can receive the helping hand they truly need,” Isaacs concluded.
Individuals, employees at corporations and students in schools can energize their social networks to host a Bag a Lunch, Help a Bunch event. Fun competitions among different classes in schools or departments within a corporation can inspire and engage participants.
