Jersey Hockey Fights Hunger tonight
The New Jersey Devils will host Jersey Hockey Fights Hunger night when the club takes on its Eastern Conference rival, the Washington Capitals, tonight at Prudential Center. This year’s game includes a food drive as well as a “Canstruction” event. Once again, the Jersey Hockey Fights Hunger program will benefit the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

All fans attending that evening’s game are asked to bring unopened cans or boxes of nonperishable food. Requested items include canned fish/meat, powdered milk and infant formula, boxed/canned meals, peanut butter, and canned vegetables/fruits.

Wives/girlfriends of Devils' players will be at the PNC Bank and Verizon Towers, as well as at the Lafayette Street, VIP, and Ford Lincoln-Mercury garage entrances to assist Community FoodBank volunteers. Donations will be distributed throughout the state. Every fan who makes a donation that evening will be eligible to win autographed Devils' memorabilia.

Canstruction is a national event sponsored by the American Institute of Architects. The New Jersey exhibit will feature a competition among local architects, engineers, and students to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. The structures typically take eight to 12 weeks and thousands of cans of food to create. They will be built during an eight-hour period on Thursday, November 12, and will be on display throughout Prudential Center’s main concourse during the game.

The event gives architects the opportunity to display their talents while also serving as a benefit for the hungry. Following the exhibits, the immense structures are dismantled and all of the canned food is donated to charity. The themes of this year’s competition will be: the New Jersey Devils, Prudential Center, the City of Newark, and hockey.

The Jersey Hockey Fights Hunger program got underway this week at AmeriHealth Pavilion at Prudential Center. Members of the team’s Alumni Association conducted a clinic while helping to collect food.

Last year, through the first annual Jersey Hockey Fights Hunger program, 11,797 pounds of food was collected for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. Last year’s event included the Devils’ annual Food Drive, as well as the Coach4Food program at AmeriHealth Pavilion.

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey, a member of Feeding America, distributed 28 million pounds of food in the last year to people in need in 18 of New Jersey’s 21 counties. Its staff and volunteers fight hunger and poverty not only through the distribution of food and grocery products, but by education and training, and by creating new programs to meet the needs of low-income people. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey recently earned Charity Navigator’s highest honor, a four-star rating.
