N.J. supplier donating 44,000 pound of meat to families in need during coronavirus
A prominent New Jersey meat supplier is making a substantial donation to a non-profit organization that will help people in need of food during the coronavirus pandemic.
D’Artagnan, a meat supplier based in Union, will donate 44,000 pounds of meat valued around $430,000 to the non-profit Table to Table. The donations, which began this week, will go to people in Bergen, Hudson, Essex, and Passaic counties and provide 68,000 meals.
“D’Artagnan has long applauded and supported Table to Table’s efforts in our community,” D’Artagnan CEO Ariane Daguin said in a statement. “We believe that during times like these, its crucial to come together ‘all for one and one for all’ to support our neighbors. We’re pleased to be able to help in any way possible, especially during a time when people are struggling to get protein.”
Table to Table will be picking up the meat and distribute it to the families in North Jersey who need the food now more than ever, with the coronavirus causing a strain on food banks across the state due to a lot of businesses and employers being closed.
“The current crisis has overwhelmed local food banks with an unprecedented need for food donations, especially protein,” Table to Table Executive Director Ilene Isaacs said in a statement. “We, along with our community partners, are beyond grateful for this meaningful contribution from our friends and neighbors at D’Artagnan. It will be redistributed safely and will provide protein for more than 68,000 meals.”
