Skoloff & Wolfe, P.C., a Livingston, NJ law firm specializing in matrimonial and family law, property tax appeals, and business and private litigation, presented a check for $3,350 to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ) as part of their 2022 “Fight to Feed Hunger” campaign. Employee donations were generously matched by the firm through a GoFundMe page.
Skoloff & Wolfe has shown an ongoing commitment to fighting hunger in New Jersey through its partnership with CFBNJ. “Hunger can be found in every corner of New Jersey,” said Jonathan Wolfe, co-managing partner of Skoloff & Wolfe. “The recent rise of inflation and supply chain issues have intensified the challenges for people facing hunger or food insecurity. Supporting the FoodBank is more important than ever.”
Approximately 800,000 New Jerseyans are Food Insecure
CFBNJ is the leading anti-hunger and anti-poverty organization in the state. Their two warehouse facilities in Hillside and Egg Harbor Township are the combined size of five football fields. Last year, they distributed food for over 85 million meals (more than 102 million pounds), 24% of which was fresh produce. This year, their goal is to provide 93 million meals.
The FoodBank’s approach to conquering hunger goes far beyond collecting and distributing food. Indeed, their programs include specific outreach to senior citizens, hungry children outside of school hours, and college campus pantries. Their supermarket gleaning program captures food that cannot be sold because of minor damage and uses refrigerated trucks to redirect it to neighbors in need.
“The multi-faceted approach that CFBNJ takes means they are extraordinarily successful at reaching the people who need help,” says David Wolfe, co-managing partner. “We are grateful to be able to support such an effective organization. I am really proud of the team here at Skoloff & Wolfe in the way they have stepped up to help create meaningful change.”
