How to Feed Voters Waiting in Long Lines at the Polls
The long lines we're already seeing in other states of voters waiting in line for hours to cast their vote in this presidential election are bound to continue, maybe even here in South Jersey. But, there's a way you can extend a kindness to those citizens.
Standing in line at polling centers has meant voters going hungry if they're waiting a super long time, or having to pack a lunch or snacks. But a non-profit called FeedthePolls.org lets people donate money to send pizza to those voters.
Feed the Polls is the brainchild of The Migrant Kitchen, Zagat, and The Infatuation. They understand that there will be a lot of people who are already experiencing food insecurity going to the polls before or on November 3rd.
Through FeedthePolls.org and @pizzatothepolls on Instagram, you can make a monetary donation that will go towards sending food to citizens enduring long waits to cast their vote. You can even let them know where you're seeing long lines in South Jersey.
Lady Gaga recently shined some light on Feed the Polls on her Instagram, where she was seen preparing brown bag lunches, including peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Make sure you’re poll ready for a fun time in line to vote, because it might be a long one! I’m going to make PB&J sandwiches for my voting snack! Make sure to pack your own snacks, and go to feedthepolls.org or @pizzatothepolls to learn how to donate to help feed people in line! ❤️

I totally plan on donating to this organization. I think it's an amazing idea. This presidential election is arguable the most important in a generation. If people are willing to wait in line for hours and hours just to make their voice heard, they deserve a treat.
