ABOUT THE CHARITIES

Let Us Eat – Please, Inc. was created in 2012 by the late James L. Cooper when he learned from his daughter, a teacher, about the effects of hunger on the one in five New Jersey children who regularly attend school hungry. Jim, who had devoted much of his 82 years advocating for community, civil rights, and philanthropic causes, formed ‘Let Us Eat – Please, Inc.’ to help address the issue. Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law is grateful and pleased to be in a position to continue the work of ‘Let Us Eat, Please’ in memory and honor of our founding partner.

Community Food Bank of New Jersey, Southern Branch,  a member of Feeding America®, has been delivering food, help and hope across the state for more than 45 years. Last year, CFBNJ provided nutritious food for over 85 million meals through its network of more than 800 community partners including pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, mobile pantries, and child and senior feeding programs throughout the 15 New Jersey counties it serves. For our hungry neighbors, the Community Food Bank of New Jersey is the powerful agent of change that fills the emptiness caused by hunger and provides resources that are essential to earning a sustainable living.
