Healthy Food. Strong Kids.
In 2015, just 19 percent of low-income New Jersey children
received meals during the summer. Despite growing need, many parents simply do
not know these programs exist in their communities.
The NJ Food for Thought Campaign, in partnership with the
New Jersey Department of Agriculture, has launched a summer meals awareness
After signing up for our Thunderclap, here are three easy things you can do to help ensure more
NJ children receive the summertime nutrition they need to return to school in
September, healthy and ready to learn.
- Send an e-blast to your networks, asking them to
spread the word and linking them to njsummermeals.org where they’ll find flyers
and other outreach resources.
Keep spreading the word via social media. Use hashtag: #njsummermeals.
- Download flyers and distribute in your community
through libraries, supermarkets, food pantries, child care centers, schools and
other places where children congregate.
Flyer, templates, social media and e-mail messages and more all available
