October 28, 2017: Since school began in September, students around Monmouth and Ocean Counties have been taking part in Fulfills’ Students Change Hunger Program – a statewide food and fund drive competition with prizes and recognition to the top performing schools in many categories. With 10 years of success, the idea of competing to collect food and funds to feed neighbors in need is our own positive spin on “Hunger Games” and we look forward to watching the schools compete, especially when they turn up the heat during the holiday season!
As Thanksgiving approaches, schools are encouraged to hold turkey and holiday food drives to ensure everyone has a Thanksgiving meal this season. Some of these items include low sodium canned vegetables, canned pumpkin, cranberry sauce, canned beans, boxed potatoes, boxed stuffing, gravy, canned soup and broth, pie crust, cornbread mix, brown or wild rice, and of course, TURKEYS!
With the dedication, creativity and efforts of our participating schools and amazing sponsors, we can put an end to hunger right here in our community. If your child’s school is interested in joining the competition, please visit www.studentschangehunger.org for more information. There is still time to get involved, the competition runs till December 11th. Thank you to all participating schools for joining us in our fight against hunger this holiday season. We hope everyone has a very happy and FULFILLING Thanksgiving.
We would also like to thank our Students Change Hunger Sponsors for their support and partnership!
