The Morris County Municipal Action to Curb Hunger (McMATCH) campaign was launched in 2012 as a friendly competition between municipalities to see who could raise the most food for the hungry. This year, the second annual McMATCH campaign is running the entire month of September, which is Hunger Awareness Month. 20 towns are participating. Jefferson Township, in support of their local food pantries, is competing against ten other towns in Division 3. To visit the “2013 McMATCH - Jefferson Township” Drive Page, click here.
Municipalities can choose to participate by organizing traditional food drives, raising money, or conducting an online food drive at YouGiveGoods.com, where it will all be tracked in real-time, 24-7.
