Anthony Dolceamore, of Egg Harbor Township, organized the eighth annual neighborhood food drive with the residents of Harbor Pines for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
On Thursday, Aug. 13, Dolceamore and his daughter Victoria collected 944 pounds of food from the neighbors, bringing the total Harbor Pines annual food drive collection to almost 7,000 pounds of food.
The Harbor Pines community residents are always eager to participate and support the Community Food Bank of N.J. Their enthusiasm and generosity are greatly appreciated.
The circumstances of the COVID-19 crisis has affected people in different ways. This year, more than ever, the community food bank has even greater needs.
Many people in Atlantic County benefit from the work of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. Last year the food bank distributed over 50 million pounds of food through more than 1,000 community partners, such as local soup kitchens and food pantries. This food, all 42 million meals, reached people in need across the state.
