Don’t believe me? Click on that link then come on back because I am going to hook you up.
That’s right, its the time of year to make your brain feel good and help out a whole bunch of people at the same time.
It’s a great cause and because they call it “virtual” it’s easy for me to blog about. In all seriousness contributing to FoodBank allows you to have an impact tenfold over what you contribute. For every $1 you give, the FoodBank has $10 of buying power through buying in bulk

Letter from the Glen Ridge Women’s Club, November 10, 2016
Once again this year the Women’s Club is partnering with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey to run the Glen Ridge Virtual Food Drive.
Did you know that more than 1,000,000 people in New Jersey don’t always have enough to eat, and that almost 900,000 of them rely on food banks to supplement their family’s food source? Many of these families are forced to choose between paying utilities, medicine, housing or buying food. These food pantries are vital to their daily nutritional well-being.
The many local pantries and soup kitchens which support Glen Ridge residents, as well as our surrounding towns such as Bloomfield and Montclair, rely on this additional source of food to complement the physical food drives that we all participate in.
As we begin this traditional season of giving, you can help! Visit www.cfbnj.org/grfd to make a donation or go on a virtual food drive. It’s a great opportunity to involve your children and grandchildren in the giving spirit by shopping for specific food items on the FoodBank website, with the added benefit
that buying in bulk allows them to purchase $10 of food for every $1 donated.
Won’t you take a moment to make a tax deductible contribution?
