1,000 turkeys donated anonymously in New Jersey

1,000 turkeys donated anonymously in New Jersey

Gift allows Englewood food bank to feed 3,800 families for Thanksgiving

The Center for Food Action of Englewood, New Jersey is feeling a little more thankful these days due to an anonymous Thanksgiving donor.

The person donated 1,000 turkeys, allowing the North Jersey operation to provide Thanksgiving dinner baskets to most, if not all, of the 3,800 families in Bergen and Passaic counties who requested them.

CFA executive director Patricia Espy told the Associated Press the food bank is running behind on items such as canned potatoes and vegetables. She hopes additional donations will allow the organization to provide complete holiday dinners to everyone.

The Center for Food Action web site says their most needed items are canned meat (tuna, chicken, etc.), canned hearty soup, canned vegetables, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, cereal, dry milk such as boxed Parmalat, canned fruits, instant potatoes, 100% juice, baby formula and diapers sizes 4, 5, and 6, bar soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes, and supermarket gift cards.

When they have sufficient funding, the CFA includes fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and milk as well as paper products, personal care items, and cleaning supplies. Special food packages are prepared for specific dietary needs, or for those who are without cooking facilities.
