It's that time of the year again! Won't you please help us with the 2019 edition of the Lite Rock Holiday Food Drive? Every weekend leading up to Thanksgiving we will be at a different South Jersey ShopRite collecting food for the hungry for this Thanksgiving holiday.

Each year the Community Food Bank of New Jersey Southern Branch helps feed over 900,000 hungry people including over 260,000 children.

Every November, we ask our listeners to help us collect food items to make sure no one in South Jersey goes hungry for the holiday season.

When you donate we will put you in the running for tickets to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra Winter Tour 2019 - The All New Christmas Eve and Other Stories.

Check out the upcoming stops below to drop by with food or a monetary donation for the Community Food Bank of New Jersey Southern Branch.
