NBC10’s We CAN Food Drive

News Source: NBC 10 Philadelphia

NBC10 has been bringing you stories lately about local food banks like Philabundance and the Food Bank of South Jersey that have been hit with extra requests this year thanks to Superstorm Sandy and the holidays.

Now NBC10 is stepping in to help the immediate need to feed the hungry this Thanksgiving.

The “NBC10 We CAN Food Drive” is happening this Friday (Nov. 16) from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. as NBC10 personalities take your contributions at easily accessible locations set up in Pennsylvania and New Jersey while we broadcast live throughout the day.

NBC10 has teamed up with Philabundance to get canned goods to more than 500 agencies in nine counties and you can help. We are collecting food in sealed cans, boxes and bottles — basically no foods that need refrigeration or easily spoil like bread or baked goods — that were recently purchased and in good condition.

There are three drop off locations:

  • NBC10 Parking Lot (Montco) – 10 Monument Road, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004
  • Adventure Aquarium (South Jersey) – 1 Aquarium Drive, Camden, NJ 08103
  • Philabundence Hunger Relief Center (South Philly) – 3616 S Galloway Street, Philadelphia, PA 19148

Here are some of the food items most needed:
– Breakfast cereal
– Canned beef stew
– Canned chili
– Canned corn
– Canned fruit
– Canned green beans
– Canned pasta
– Canned tuna
– Creamy peanut butter
– Jelly
– Hot cereal
– Macaroni and cheese

No donation is too small. So come out, meet some of your favorite NBC10 talent and do a good deed for those in need this holiday season.
