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.
