Table to Table is a community-based food rescue program that collects perishable food that would otherwise be wasted and delivers it to organizations that serve the hungry in Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic counties.
We “rescue” food from about 150 donors (supermarkets, food distributors, restaurants and commercial kitchens) and deliver it the same day free of charge to over 250 community organizations including food pantries, shelters, day care/after school programs, senior adult centers, and programs serving the working poor.
Nearly 1 million people in New Jersey are hungry, including 1 in 9 children. Every day, more families are lining up at food pantries and soup kitchens waiting for our deliveries and each week brings calls from additional agencies asking for our fresh, healthy food. To all of them, this year, we have promised the delivery of more than 39 million meals. But to achieve this goal – we need your support.
