Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno Announces State Museum’s Annual Food Drive To Support Trenton Soup Kitchen

Anyone Donating Non-Perishable Food Items Receives $1 Discount on Planetarium Admission

*TRENTON, NJ*– Highlighting the need for everyone to help individuals and families struggling during this holiday season, Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno today announced that the New Jersey State Museum, in partnership with the Trenton Soup Kitchen, is collecting donated non-perishable food items for those without food.

Now through January 13, 2013, anyone donating a non-perishable food item (but not items in glass jars) at the State Museum will receive a one dollar discount to any laser or sky show at the Museum’s Planetarium. Discounts are limited to one per visitor. Items can be brought to the Museum’s planetarium lobby Tuesday through Sunday from 9:00 am to 4:45 pm.

“Since Hurricane Sandy struck New Jersey, I’ve seen people come together to help others struggling to recover from devastating loss and destruction,” said Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno. “Here in New Jersey, this helping spirit is not new. For many years, the Trenton Soup Kitchen has collected food to feed the truly needy people of Trenton. Five days a week, Trenton’s hungry can find a meal thanks to the caring and commitment of volunteers at the Trenton Soup Kitchen.”

"The Trenton Area Soup Kitchen is thrilled that the New Jersey State Museum will be supporting our programs again this year,” said Dennis C. Micai, executive director of the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen.** “The food received through donations will go a long way in helping us provide the more than 3,600 meals we serve to the hungry of the Greater Trenton area each week.”

Planetarium laser and sky shows are featured every weekend at 12 pm, 1 pm, 2 pm, and 3 pm. The State Planetarium, the largest planetarium facility in New Jersey, comfortably seats 150 visitors in specially designed reclining chairs that transport audiences to astronomical destinations. The state-of-the-art, full dome video system displays precision projection of more than 6,000 stars and immerses audiences within images covering the entire 360-degree inner dome. This latest digital technology, coupled with a high power 7.1 surround sound, allows Planetarium visitors to feel the sensation of zooming through the solar system and beyond.
