The Center for Food Action received a $15,000 grant last month, thanks to the County Executive Grant Program for 2013, the county announced in a release last week.
The “Center for Food Action impacts so many lives in such positive way,” County Executive Kathy Donovan said in a release about the donation.
“The people of Bergen County rely on entities such as CFA to assist them during rough periods in their lives. I am proud of their efforts and I am glad to assist their worthy cause”.
Jennifer Johnson, the CFA’s Director of Communications, accepted the check from the County Executive.
The Center for Food Action, which has a location in Mahwah, "is grateful to Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan for selecting CFA as the recipient of a $15,000 grant in support of our work to help those who are struggling to keep food on their tables and roof over their heads”, Johnson said in the release.
“Last year we provided over 70,000 emergency food packages to those in need living in Northern New Jersey. Bergen County Administrative offices in Hackensack are also hosting a year round food drive for CFA. Together we are making a difference.”
