This fall, Toni's Kitchen is once again the recipient of a "Sustain and Serve NJ" grant from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority to purchase meals from local restaurants and distribute them to those in need in our community. New Jersey recognizes the ongoing impact of the pandemic, and Toni's is proud to be a part of this program to help those we serve get food they need.
The first grant earlier in 2021 allowed Toni's Kitchen to distribute thousands of meals made by Montclair-area restaurants to fight food insecurity in our area. This current grant will continue through January 2022.
Statewide, the first phase of the "Sustain and Serve NJ" program has supported the purchase of 1.5 million meals from over 350 restaurants with grant totaling over $14 million.
