Table to Table, NJ’s First Food Rescue, Receives a $100,000 Grant from Impact100 Garden State

June 12, 2024 Saddle Brook, NJ – – Table to Table, New Jersey’s first food rescue organization, is the proud recipient of a $100,000 grant from Impact100 Garden State for its program, Food Rescue Heroes: Bridging the Gap Between Food Waste & Food Insecurity. The generous funding will allow the food rescue nonprofit, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, to expand its mission of rescuing food, reducing waste, and relieving hunger into Morris County, adding to its existing footprint of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Passaic counties. Food rescue efforts for this grant will be supported by Table to Table I-Rescue, the nonprofit’s popular volunteer-based app powered by Food Rescue Hero.

For 25 years, Table to Table has bridged the gap for local neighbors in need by reducing food waste, sustaining those who are struggling, and contributing to their better health outcomes. We recognize the vital role that fresh food plays in nourishing not only the body, but also the spirit and mind. At the same time, keeping quality food out of landfills creates a positive environmental impact.

What began in 1999 with one food rescue in a donated van has flourished to become an efficient and impactful operation and a force for change that—to date—has resulted in the rescue and delivery of enough food for over 311 million healthy meals throughout northern New Jersey. To mark their milestone anniversary, the nonprofit has set a goal of rescuing/delivering enough fresh food for 25 million meals this year, via its fleet of 6 trucks and volunteer-based app, Table to Table I-Rescue.
