NJ mobile food banks goes where the demand is the most

    The Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s mobile Food Pantry is going to where it is needed the most.

    In a story from the Press of Atlantic City, the pantry’s Egg Harbor Township services are seeing a demand in need from residents.  As a result the food bank in that area is expanding its services through the use of mobile pantries.

    “We are finding that many who used to donate to the FoodBank are now seeking help from pantries,” Executive Director Margie Barham told the Press of Atlantic City.

    According to the story, the nonprofit distributed a record 7.1 million pounds of groceries.  Barham tells the Press of Atlantic City the food bank is focusing its limited resources on places where existing food pantries are overtaxed.
