COVID-19: Freeholders Providing Second ROund of Emergency Funds to County’s Food Pantries and Kitchens

Nonprofit Food Providers Have Increased Need Due to COVID Crisis

 

The Morris County Board of Freeholders has approved a second $28,000 COVID-19 emergency allocation to assist four major food pantries and kitchens in Morris County that provide nourishment to many hundreds of residents and families who are struggling with a loss of jobs and income, and resultant food insecurity during this health crisis.

 

County allocations of $7,000 apiece have been approved unanimously by the Freeholder Board for the Interfaith Food Pantry, Nourish NJ, Table of Hope, and Faith Kitchen.

 

The money is to be used by each organization to help meet its most pressing needs. The board also allocated $28,000 for food kitchens and pantries in April.

 

“Many residents of Morris County continue to struggle during this crisis, having lost jobs or much of their incomes, as they try to care for their families,” said Freeholder Director Deborah Smith. “As a result, food pantries have become essential to their existence, and we need to continue to help them to help our residents.”

 

“We have seen the long lines at food distribution sites across the county, and understand food pantries and kitchens are providing vital services to the county community,” said Freeholder Kathy DeFillippo. “These food providers are hard pressed to meet the demands, and need money, food, and volunteers to help so many of our families.”
