Feeding Hands Thanksgiving Food Drive
Hello Feeding Hands Volunteers!

HAPPY FALL!  Thanksgiving is only 25 days away.

Good news! We will still be giving Thanksgiving dinners to our Guests.
Bad news! Due to COVID, we will not be able to do the large-scale Thanksgiving distribution like we have in prior years.
So what is Feeding Hands doing this year? On each Tuesday in November, we will give Guests their Thanksgiving supplies when they come in for their scheduled appointments.
Additionally, we will have Food Drives on 3 days: Friday, November 20 through Sunday, November 22.
We are looking for volunteers to help with the Food Drives at the Somerville ShopRite and Branchburg ShopRite. We will also need volunteers to unload and stock donations at our NEW Raritan location (120 Orlando Drive, Raritan, NJ 08869).

Branchburg ShopRite:  Friday, Nov 20 & Saturday, Nov 22
Somerville ShopRite: Saturday, Nov 22 & Sunday, Nov 23
Raritan:  Friday, Nov 20 – Sunday, Nov 23

We hope you are available to help. All shifts are posted on the Feeding Hands website for the above dates. Please sign up at Feedinghandspantry.org . If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Safety for our volunteers is a priority! If you are sick or have been traveling out of state (and need to quarantine), please do not volunteer. Everyone must wear a mask and social distance.

Thank you for all you do for Feeding Hands!
Wishing everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
