June 14, 2010 – Claire Insalata Poulos, Founder and President of Table to Table, northeast New Jersey’s only dedicated food rescue program, recently received the Russ Berrie Award for Making a Difference. The award honors uncommon acts on behalf of the common good, recognizing unusual heroism and community service by New Jersey residents.

Poulos was one of only 11 recipients from throughout the state and was selected for founding Table to Table and working as a full-time volunteer. She received the award at a ceremony and luncheon at Ramapo College of New Jersey on June 1, at which Former Governor Tom Kean was the keynote speaker and Steve Adubato was the Master of Ceremonies. The award was presented by Angelica Berrie, President of the Russell Berrie Foundation.
