Collecting non-perishable food items @ the 10/18 Market


[wpgmza id=”1″]

Please remember those in need this season when getting ready for tomorrow’s Autumn Fest Farmers Market.

There will be a food donation collection box at the Brigantine Information Tent (orange tent by Library). Monetary donations will also be accepted here. All donations will be distributed to Brigantine’s True Spirit Coalition, who will be at the Market tomorrow with information about their organization. Below is the weekly Farmer’s Article with more information.

An Attitude of Gratitude

10/17/2014 – Brigantine Beachcomber 
Submitted by Sara Earle

All are invited to the 2014 Brigantine Farmers Market Autumn Fest this Saturday from 8:30 to noon at the corner of 15th and Revere Streets and in Haneman Park. Rain or shine, you will find lots of Fall produce, crafts prepared food and much more for the whole family to enjoy. Be sure to submit your best Fall photo and your homemade scarecrows by 9 am for judging and lots of great prizes.

As we enter the season of giving thanks, we ask Brigantiners to help those who may need a little extra support. When you visit the Market this week, please bring non-perishable food items to the Red Information Tent for a special donation to the True Spirit Coalition based at the Community Presbyterian Church. True Spirit is a partnership of caring and generous Brigantine businesses and religious, civic and other organizations who work toward a common goal of supporting members of our community who are in need.

Not sure what to bring? The most needed items to keep families fed and healthy are non-perishable proteins. These include canned tuna or other fish, beef ravioli, beans, beef stew, chicken and peanut butter. Also on the wish list are fruit juices, cereal and boxes of mac and cheese.  Toiletries can help as well but are less important. Thanks so much for your support, Brigantine!

And speaking of an attitude of gratitude, all of us on the Market Committee wish to thank the Beachcomber and staff for all of their help getting the word out about the Market and providing lots of great photos and coverage throughout the season. You can read more about the 2015 Market season right here in the Beachcomber in coming months.
