Healthy Food or Rent?

The Question Some NJ Caregivers Are Asking this Summer

With summer approaching, many families are eagerly planning vacations and camps for their children while—conversely–thousands upon thousands of NJ caregivers are burdened with figuring out how to feed their children this summer.

Universal Free Meals at Schools are Slated to End

Many struggling families rely on the daily meals that are provided to their children during the school year. Additionally, universal free meals at schools put in place as an emergency measure during Covid, are slated to end this summer.

“If I didn’t get this food, it would be tough because I can’t afford healthy food. I feel blessed that Table to Table gives my kids the nutritious food they need,” says Barbara, a mother of three from Englewood, New Jersey.

Since our founding in 1999, Table to Table has ensured that students and their families are fed throughout the summer. Just as hunger doesn’t take a break, neither does our commitment to this community.

Nearly 1 of every 7 children in NJ is food insecure. Table to Table, New Jersey’s first food rescue organization, delivers nutritious food to families like Barbara’s. And, as a result—this summer–families in need can enjoy the benefits and reassurance of fresh, wholesome food.
