Hasbrouck Heights, NJ November 10, 2022 – Table to Table, New Jersey’s first and most successful food rescue organization, debuts its second 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, 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, 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.
“What better way to express your gratefulness this Thanksgiving than to make the holiday special for hungry neighbors throughout NJ,” said Julie Kinner, Vice President of Operations, Table to Table. “Join us for The Great Northern NJ Turkey Take, and you’ll be donating and volunteering at the same time. Plus, you can even donate that free turkey you’ve received from your local grocery store,” Kinner concluded.
About Table to Table
Table to Table (http://www.tabletotable.org), NJ’s first and most successful food rescue organization, collects fresh and perishable food which would otherwise be wasted and delivers it to organizations that serve people experiencing hunger in Bergen, Hudson, Essex, and Passaic counties in Northeastern NJ. We bring rescued fresh, nutritious food to 200+ partner organizations including social service organizations, pantries, shelters and fresh produce markets and centralized distribution hubs. Food is provided free of charge. Through this, we touch a diversity of those in need, including families, children, veterans, and older adults, making good nutrition accessible while serving as a stimulus for other longer-term benefits. Table to Table raises all its own funds annually, and last year delivered enough food for nearly 39 million meals.
