Dunkin' employees

Employees of local Dunkin’ franchises volunteer their time at the Community Food Bank of New Jersey location in Egg Harbor Township after the presentation of a check for $7,500 to assist in feeding the less fortunate in South Jersey.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — The Community Food Bank of New Jersey received a check for $7,500 on Tuesday from The Joy In Childhood Foundation, a charitable partnership between Baskin-Robbins and Dunkin’.

"This grant will enable the Community Food Bank of New Jersey fill the nutrition gap for food insecure kids by providing nourishing after-school meals every day so they don’t go home on empty stomachs," said Jessica Weissman, a spokesperson for Dunkin'.

Local Dunkin’ franchisees volunteered at the Community Food Bank location in Egg Harbor Township after the grant presentation.

In a post on its web site last year, the Food Bank said they have received help from the foundation since 2011, both in direct donations and Feeding America grants.

Employees of local Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins stores volunteer every fall as part of their Week of Joy.
