With the Great Northern NJ Turkey Take, Residents Donate & Deliver Frozen Turkeys via Table to Table’s I-Rescue App Now through December 22

Saddle Brook, NJ  October 25, 2023 – Table to Table, New Jersey’s first food rescue organization, kicks off its annual Great Northern NJ Turkey Take with Table to Table I-Rescue, a holiday initiative allowing residents in Bergen, Essex, Hudson and Passaic Counties to personally donate and deliver a frozen turkey—or more—to local food pantries and group homes.

Now through December 22, individuals, corporations, schools, and community groups can contact Table to Table to inform of us of your donation. Then, download the Table to Table I-Rescue app for the location near you where the turkey can be delivered. Or, if you’d like, volunteers will pick up your donation and deliver it for you.

Alternatively, if you would like to help, but are too busy to shop, you can make a donation to help Table to Table deliver more meals throughout the year to those in need. Table to Table I-Rescue–powered by Food Rescue Hero–is available on iOS and Google Play.

“As we celebrate our third year of The Great Northern NJ Turkey Take, we invite the community at large to join us in feeding our hungry neighbors, especially as Thanksgiving quickly approaches,” said Julie Kinner, Vice President of Operations, Table to Table. “Remember, you can donate that free turkey you’ve received from your local grocery store,” Kinner concluded.
