This is irrelevant to design and I'm not even from New Jersey, but its such a good cause and it breaks my heart to think of the dwindling food supply in our own country.

Please add this link to your blog or pass the word along if you can't make a monetary donation (like me). Here is a snippet from Househubbie's website:
If everyone could just do a little, it would help those in need a lot. To help, people can:
- Make a monetary contribution: Visit www.njfoodbank.org.
- Donate food: Drop off a bag of food at your local food pantry.
- Organize a food drive: We can help explain the logistics of starting a food drive. Just call 908-355-FOOD.
- Help "Check Out Hunger:" Look for the "Check Out Hunger" coupons at your local supermarket and donate. No donation is too small!
