Planned Companies: Thanksgiving Diversity Lunch/Charity Food Drive
November 22, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST
On Friday November 22nd, 2019, we will be holding our annual EEC sponsored Thanksgiving/Diversity Lunch at their Parsippany Headquarters. Associates from our offices are able to bring non-perishable food items that will be collected and donated to the Food Bank at the Parsippany Community Center.
Food Pantry demand is especially high during the Holiday Season. Below is a list of the items food banks need the most. Please opt for pull tab cans or plastic containers whenever possible. Many food pantry shoppers do not have a can opener, and glass containers can break when the food is transported.

Applesauce – Unsweetened
Canned Beans – Low sodium options preferred
Canned Fish – Tuna or Salmon
Canned Meat – Spam or ham
Canned Vegetables – Low sodium options preferred
