Child eating food Just by doing the thing you've been meaning to do, you'll be supporting your favorite music station AND partnering with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey and Stop & Shop to feed a hungry child. According to data recently released by Feeding America, more than 1.2 million people in New Jersey, including almost 400,000 children, don't know where their next meal will come from.

Food chicken served Through programs such as Kids Cafe and the BackPack program, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey doesn't just feed children evening or weekend meals, it also teaches them why nutrition is so important. Obesity and related illnesses, including diabetes, are more prevalent among low-income households, so our partners at Community FoodBank of New Jersey consider nutrition education an important component of their programs.

Pledge your support to WBGO right now and, thanks to Stop & Shop and the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, provide much-needed healthy food to a child who might otherwise not eat over the weekend. Call 1-800-499-9246 right now and take care of two priorities. Feed your radio and feed a hungry child.
