PLAINFIELD — The Community Food Bank of New Jersey continued its mission to end hunger in the Garden State on Wednesday by packing and distributing over 1,000 turkeys and chickens to be given away to the hungry in communities across the state.

Organizations like the Plainfield-based non-profit SHEELD and volunteers, including FiOS1 News Anchor Brian Webb were on site on Wednesday, squeezing box after box of food into vehicles to ensure that those who go hungry in their communities don't have to bear that burden on their backs this holiday season.

An estimated 28,000 families will be able to enjoy holidays like Thanksgiving this year thanks to the Food Bank of New Jersey and its partners' organizations.
