SOUTH ORANGE, NJ – The Community Food Bank of New Jersey is holding a Holiday Turkey and Food Drive this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the South Orange Elks Lodge, 220 Prospect St.

Items may be dropped off at the Elks Lodge to help feed people in need this holiday season. Suggested donations include frozen turkeys (not fresh or thawed), canned soups, canned stews, canned fruits, canned vegetables, pasta, rice, grains and other non-perishable foods. Do not bring any items in glass jars or bottles.

The holidays can be a very difficult time for families in need. Anyone planning to shop on Saturday for their Thanksgiving dinner is encouraged to grab a few extra items for those less fortunate and drop them off at the Elks Lodge on their way home.
