Bank of America backs Table to Table vs. Food Insecurity

Table to Table, a local non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing fresh, healthy food and delivering it to those who need it most, has received a $75,000 grant from Bank of America (BofA). The organization tells Pascack Press the grant will “help feed more hungry neighbors while improving economic mobility in Northern New Jersey.”

Table to Table collects fresh and perishable food that would otherwise be wasted and delivers it, free of charge, to more than 200 partner organizations that serve hungry people in Bergen, Hudson, Essex, and Passaic Counties through a network of fresh produce markets and centralized distribution hubs.

Among the participants: Children’s Aid and Family Services’ group homes in Montvale and Park Ridge. And in Westwood, through the Table to Table I-Rescue app, Table to Table delivers fresh, nutritious food to Annie Clyde Holt Food Pantry, Parkside Community Church, and St. Andrew’s Church.

“The tremendous support of Bank of America allows us to establish and grow innovative programs to feed even more hungry neighbors such as the Table to Table I-Rescue App, Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, and I-Rescue Lunch,” said Denise Anderson, Table to Table’s executive director. “We appreciate BofA’s generous support and continued investment in our Northern NJ community.”

The grant is part of Bank of America’s philanthropic giving efforts in local communities. Awardees were selected for their commitment to addressing basic needs and workforce development for individuals and families.

Alberto Garofalo, Bank of America New Jersey’s president, said in a statement, “Since 1999, Table to Table has reached deep into communities in need to deliver fresh, healthy food to no/low-income families. We are excited to support them in their continued efforts to eliminate food insecuirty.”
