The Dog Days of August…Not!

August 15 2015 upload - Ralston Farm and other 252

It’s August and here in NJ that means tomatoes!  My family’s lucky – we have a CSA share at Ralston Farm, right down the road from us. They grow outstanding organic fruits and veggies.  We just picked up these incredible tomatoes – delicious!

While August is a vacation month for many – not for us and for many others working to help those facing hunger during the summer – a time when most hunger organizations struggle with lower donations.

The Chefs’ Community Table drive just wrapped up and raised over 400 meals to support the Market Street Mission in Morristown, NJ.  We’ll be delivering all those meals soon. Thanks to the team at St. Jacques Marketing and many others for making this first of its kind food drive successful!

We also just delivered a ton of fresh produce to the Food Bank Network of Somerset County raised by the annual Curbing Hunger drive – carrots, bananas and lots of other good stuff!  Curbing Hunger has been running this annual drive for 21 years!Curbing Hunger 8.13.15

The REAL Food Drive campaign is picking up steam – we’ll be sharing some exciting news about it soon.  In the meantime, stay cool and enjoy these last couple of weeks before the school season is in full swing.
