Despite some vandalism, the CFA Englewood onsite garden is flourishing. We thank the community for the outpouring of seedling donations to replace what was stolen and to Master Gardener Anna Fisichella for her leadership and dedication.
Volunteers are still needed to help maintain the CFA Englewood onsite garden that has nearly nearly tripled in size since last year. We welcome all seasoned and new gardeners who are interested in helping manage and continue to expand our gardens. Contact Kathy Mikula 201.569.1804 x29.
Thank you to Tasha Urbanowski, the Dwight Englewood School 6th grade class once again prepared and amended the soil and are now in the process of planting our spring crops and to The Ability School students who are part of our garden team. #Community.
In addition, we're happy to announce that the Central Unitarian Church in Paramus has also planted their first onsite garden to help CFA clients. It's a 45x40 plot that will soon produce much needed fresh produce for our clients. To learn more about their garden please contact CUC at 201.262.6300.
Thank you to CFA Board Member Deborah Klein and family for their generous donation in support of CFA's work to provide fresh and nutritious produce to our neighbors in need.
Hunger doesn’t take the summer off, and for Elaine, who has twin ten year old sons and pins together two part-time jobs, summertime is anything but the blissful, wistful season we all see portrayed in TV commercials. Instead, summertime is a season of higher food bills, electric bills, additional childcare costs and high stress.
Like Elaine, many of your neighbors will turn to the Center for Food Action this summer in order to put food on their tables.
We are buying many of the basics that go into our emergency food packages – things like peanut butter, soup, pasta and fresh items such as eggs and vegetables – because food donations are just not keeping pace with the need.
The thought of having a child or a senior citizen or anyone in our area going hungry is unacceptable. We urgently need your help to make sure that this doesn’t happen. Your gift will help ensure that local families will be able to put food on their tables this summer.
We recently launched a Food Rescue Program to help reduce local food waste and increase our ability to provide fresh produce to our neighbors in need. Using our new refrigerated truck, we are now able to pick up fresh and non-perishable food items, as well as discontinued products, from 12 area supermarkets. We can then quickly distribute this food before it expires. Thanks again to the Bergen Highlands/Ramsey Rotary Club, Jen Maxfield Ostfeld and Scott Ostfeld and the Richard S. Wolfman Family Foundation for making this possible.
Welcome to Smile Packs
Smile Packs, a new CFA initiative, is designed to help encourage our young clients to exercise proper dental hygiene. With the support of four area dentists and local groups, we are now periodically adding Smile Packs to the weekend snack packs that are distributed to local elementary school children.
Thank you to Fair Lawn Dental Associates (Dr. Mahler), Edgewater Pediatric Dentistry (Dr. Rosalie Nguyen), Pediatric Dentistry, (Dr. Frank Scartozzi) and Prosmiles Cosmetic Dentistry (Dr. Lena Andriescu) for generously donating the first Smile Packs.
Will your dentist support our Smile Packs initiative? For more information contact: email@example.com | 201.569.1804 x28
