Thank you to TD Charitable Foundation for the generous grant for our families in need. It couldn’t have come at a better time, as NJ.com recently reported on a 50 percent increase in food insecurity in New Jersey by year’s end.
The number of New Jerseyans who have uncertain access to healthy food is expected to increase by more than 50 percent by the end of this year because of the pandemic, bringing the total of food-insecure people to 1.2 million, or 13.5 percent of the population, according to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. For children, the projected increase is even bigger, at 75 percent, bringing the total to 365,000, the report said.
