As Thanksgiving approaches, many of us start thinking about those who struggle to get enough to eat. If you're interested in volunteering or donating food or money this holiday season, check out this list of Philadelphia and South Jersey food banks, or give non-perishable items during one of these food drives:
- The Flyers are collecting food at all home games until November 22.
- Boy Scouts will be dropping off food-collection bags at area homes between November 13 and 20.
- Ikea and 6ABC will be collecting food donations at the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
- This isn't technically a food drive, but hunger-relief charity MANNA is selling Thanksgiving pies and cakes to raise money. Orders can be made up until November 19.
The Food Bank of South Jersey also has instructions on how to organize your own food drive.
