Chuck Russo Accepts $25,000 Check on Behalf of Table to Table
September 2008 – Chuck Russo (left), owner of Carlo Russo’s Wine & Spirit World in Ho Ho Kus and tireless Table to Table volunteer, accepted a $25,000 “Mark of Distinction” grant from Bryan Del Bondio, president of Markham Vineyards, last month in Napa, CA. On behalf of Table to Table, Russo applied for the grant, citing record-high food prices coupled with rising fuel
costs to draw a compelling picture of Table to Table’s food rescue mission. “The cost of food has risen to its highest rate in two decades,” said Russo. “The situation is devastating for those living on the economic edge.”
Table to Table receives no government funding and, instead, relies solely on support from private and corporate donations. Numerous northern New Jersey individuals, businesses and organizations contribute to Table to Table’s success. Table to Table is the only dedicated food rescue program in northeast New Jersey. Every day, the hunger relief agency collects fully cooked entrees, fresh produce and meats, dairy products and other perishables that would normally be discarded, and safely delivers them, free of charge, to soup kitchens, homeless shelters and other social service agencies in Bergen, Passaic, Essex and Hudson counties.
