Our friends at Jersey Bites, the go-to site for New Jersey foodies, have launched a new program designed to fight hunger throughout our state.  It is called 3SquareDeals and works with restaurants in New Jersey who will offer deals on the site and via daily emails.  You purchase the meal by clicking a “Buy Now” link, then print a voucher to take to the restaurant.  It is that easy.  According to the 3SquareDeals site “After we split the total revenue from the deal with the merchant, 3SquareDeals will donate 10 percent of its revenue to the FoodBanks.”  The program will benefit three organizations; Food Bank of South Jersey, Community FoodBank of New Jersey, and The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

Over the past five years, according to Linda Keenan, Director of Development of the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, the requests for assistance her organization alone have risen 80 percent in total and for children they have risen 150 percent.  We all know the current economic climate.  Times are tough right now and some folks need a helping hand.  If you are fortunate enough to be able to go to to eat a few times a month why not make one of those a meal through 3SquareDeals?  You’ll get a great meal, a nice discount, and you will be helping the less fortunate right here in New Jersey.

Click here to visit 3SquareDeals to begin taking advantage of the great offers.  The first one is at The Mill at Spring Lake Heights.
