NJ Farmers Against Hunger is thrilled to be celebrating 25 years of connecting healthy food from farms to families.
Farmers Against Hunger (FAH) is thrilled to partner with Segel Associates and Cooks Who Care for Haddonfield’s 2nd Annual Restaurant Week. The FAH mission - connecting healthy food from farms to families - has always been important, but it is even more so now, as so many of our neighbors are struggling with pandemic-driven food insecurity. As we celebrate our 25th anniversary, we look forward to new collaborations to increase healthy food access in our South Jersey communities.
The Food Bank of South Jersey exists to provide an immediate solution to the urgent problem of hunger by providing food to people in need, teaching them to eat nutritiously, and helping them to find sustainable ways to improve their lives.
Cooks Who Care is a Philly-based nonprofit that is committed to supporting the health and well-being of the hardworking people of the Food & Beverage Industry. Since we launched our 100% Committed Campaign in September 2020 - a response to the devastating effects of the Covid-19 pandemic - we have served close to 750 meals to people working in 50+ food businesses in the greater Philadelphia area. We are excited to partner with Segel Associates & NJ Farmers Against Hunger for the 2nd Annual Haddonfield Restaurant Week to spread our mission of serving and supporting those who are serving others to South Jersey.

VALENTINE'S DAY PROJECT
Share the love on Valentine's Day this year by sending a Valentine to first responders and the elderly!
Share the love this year by writing Valentine’s cards to first responders and elderly community members.

Small valentines will be scattered about in local small businesses for community members to fill out and leave for those who will be receiving them.
While it may be more difficult to express love and appreciation for others in a socially distant way this year, sending cards to those who deserve them most is the perfect alternative.
Be on the lookout for valentines in your favorite stores around town so you can share the love!

John's Friendly Market
My Fair Trade Lady

Through the Good Times and the Bad
When disaster strikes, one thing our South Jersey towns are reliably good for is coming together quickly in times of need. Of our South Jersey towns affected by Hurricane Ida’s power, Jericho, Wenonah, and Mullica Hill were hit the hardest. We have seen the destruction that was caused by the storm within the Mullica Hill area, we’ve also seen the same amount of destruction within the Jericho and Wenonah areas.
Our team was able to connect and talk to many amazing people who are very active within these communities and the amount of positivity we heard was inspiring and uplifting. The morning after the storm, people were out and about to help within their towns and to provide support... to do what some would say is the neighborly thing to do. But it was more than that. It was more than just the neighborly thing to do because in the wake of this storm, no matter who anyone was, they were willing to help.
Mullica Hill residents were ready to help those affected within their town. From neighbors who lost their homes completely to local businesses. Multiple donations were made whether it was a donation of clothing, food, water, and essential supplies or money that was donated, anything was provided to help. The Gridless Power team was able to provide multiple generators that our team was able to pass along to families in need.
We were able to connect with Jenn and talk to Chrissy of the Wenonah Women’s Group and they had nothing but positive words to say about the town. “It’s been great to see so many people come out and get together in the time of need,“ stated Chrissy. They had volunteers from The Lions Club, The American Legion, and from Home Depot come out to really help support clean up. The town hopes it will be able to continue their clean up and get Wenonah and its members all the help and support they need.
The Wenonah Farmers Market which was typically held at their beautiful park, has now been destroyed by the storm, with hopes to be up and running next weekend. They were so generously provided the parking lot space of the Holy Nativity Lutheran Church. More details can be found on the Wenonah Farmer’s Market Instagram profile.
Now a little down the street from Wenonah we have the town of Jericho. An area that is not heavily wooded, the neighborhood saw lots of uprooted trees that made their way through homes and caused lots of damage to multiple properties. We were able to speak to Councilman Wayne Love and discuss all the efforts that were being made and how multiple surrounding towns offered up a huge helping hand.
A little over a week later we are continuing our efforts to assist and help all those who were affected by the storm, with the help of the Haddonfield Farmers’ Market (details available on their profile @haddonfieldfarm). Whether it be neighbors, friends, family, or strangers, South Jersey will not question helping in times of great need - with love and speed.
