YOUR DONATION FEEDS PEOPLE IN CAPE MAY

The simple gift of food represents the care and safety of the community. Together we can ensure all our neighbors have access to nutritious foods they need.

 EVER WONDER WHAT YOUR DONATION BUYS AT THE FOOD CLOSET?

 

Each donation is important and helps provide nutritious food and essential items for Cape May residents. Here are some specifics: 

- A $10 donation buys peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a family of 2 for a week

- A $25 donation buys breakfast for a family of 4 for two weeks

- A $50 donation buys a nutritious dinner for 4 for a week

- A $100 donation sustains 3 families for 2 weeks

As we are a registered 501c3 Corporation, all of your donations are 100% tax deductible (of course subject to law!).
