Another reminder that we at U.S. 1 have moved. Our new address 15 Princess Road, Suite K, Lawrenceville 08648. Phone (609-452-7000) and fax (609-452-0033) remain the same. So do the E-mail addresses — the key ones are firstname.lastname@example.org for event submissions; email@example.com for advertising materials; and firstname.lastname@example.org for classified ad submissions.
While the editorial and adverting departments have been operating out of Princess Road for some time now, the delivery operation has just made the move. Starting from that point, instead of starting from 12 Roszel Road a few miles to the north, has triggered a few adjustments to our delivery routes and the people who cover them.
If your office has suddenly been missed, or if you have any other question or issue regarding delivery, please call 609-452-7000 or E-mail email@example.com.
#b#To the Editor: Hunger at Home#/b#
It is with deep appreciation for the people of Princeton that I write this letter. Recently, we held a “friendraiser” at the Community Park School to raise awareness of an insidious problem experienced here and all over the country, that being food insecurity, not being confident at all times that there’s enough food at home for a healthy meal.
This friendraiser represented the second annual event highlighting the fact that more than 450 of our school age children do experience food insecurity, and we can and have made a difference. As a result of last year’s event, we were able to provide more than 22,000 supplementary packages of food for weekend meals.
This year we would like to do the same and more.
Our recent event highlighted the issue by using the talents of celebrity chef Brian Duffy providing an entertaining cooking demonstration, allowing and encouraging kids in the audience to participate in the cooking process. The food was easy to prepare, affordable and a healthy balance. We thank the generosity of Chef Duffy in making the trek from Philadelphia and helping in this cause.
It costs $165 to feed a child on the weekends throughout the school year. It is estimated that there are about 250 kids in pre K through 5th grade and to provide meals for all these kids we need to raise a minimum of $41,250. To expand the program we need more. We’re on our way. Current contributions are at $35,000. We invite the Princeton community to help out by going to www.SHUPprinceton.org.
