|Food Bank Donations
Please Help the South Jersey Food Bank with Food Drop-Off at County Environmental Center
To aid in the collection of food donations for the South Jersey Food Bank, the Camden County Board of Freeholders has designated the Camden County Environmental Center a food donation location. The Center is located at 1301 Park Boulevard, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002. The drive will continue through the end of 2014. This is a convenient location with parking for drop-offs.
“We want to help make it as easy as possible for residents to drop-off donations of canned goods and other staples to help keep the shelves filled at the Food Bank, “ said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.
The drop-off box will be located in the Lobby of the Environmental Center and residents can drop off donations from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Below is a list of foods that Food Bank can really use. We will request pickups whenever our bin is full and we are depending on the support of Camden County residents to help keep it filled throughout the coming year.
List of food to be donated:
High Protein Items Breads & Cereals
Peanut butter Breakfast cereals (whole grain)
Canned tuna or salmon
Canned chicken or ham
Beans – canned or dry
Pasta (whole grain)
Peanuts, sunflower seeds, almonds
Fruits & Vegetables Holiday Items
Fruit (canned) Cranberry sauce
Instant mashed potatoes
Dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, prunes)
Canned pie fillings
Macaroni & cheese
Canned stews, chili
Ravioli, Spaghettios, etc.
The Food Bank cannot accept previously-opened containers, repackaged and homemade items, outdated products, or perishables—e.g., breads, pies, cakes, produce, meat (fresh or frozen).
The Food Bank asks that, when choosing foods to donate, kindly consider the nutrient value so that our South Jersey children, adults and seniors are receiving healthy and nutritious meals year round.
