CLARK, NJ - The Clark Give and Share Program is once again sponsoring the " Bag of Sides” food collection.  According to organizers this year is especially challenging and many more families are food-insecure.   In recent years they have collected over 400 bags of sides to help the needy supplement holiday meals.  

Those interested in donating are asked to fill a bag with:

  • One box of instant mashed potatoes or stuffing
  • One or two cans of vegetables
  • One can of turkey gravy 
  • One can of cranberry sauce  

Organizers are also collecting turkeys, hams and chickens. Please call  Nancy Raymond, Clark Health Officer at 732-428-8405 in advance to arrange pick up or drop-off of bags of sides and perishable items.

Collections began the week of October 6 and continue through November 6.
