The SALT Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to fighting against hunger, is gearing up for a loaded spring schedule this year. In the upcoming events, SALT Foundation will be providing the public with free bags of healthy food.
The healthy fruits, vegetables, grains and other perishable food for these events has been donated to SALT Foundation by Trader Joe’s in Hoboken, Trader Joe’s in Brick, and Wegman’s in Princeton.
“So many have struggled to make it through an incredibly challenging winter, but this weekend we are gratified to welcome spring by helping to provide for those who need it most,” said Claudia Wheeler, SALT Foundation founder. “Spring is a time of hope and optimism, and it is crucial we support our neighbors in whatever ways we can. Healthy food addresses some of our most critical physical needs, and serving one another in love and compassion helps address our social needs as well.”
SALT Foundation gathers healthy and quality food that would otherwise be thrown away from these generous grocery stores, and then distributes it to homeless shelters, food pantries, soup kitchens, women’s shelters, community groups, churches, community fridges, and special events like this one. Over the past decade, SALT Foundation has collected and delivered more than 145,000 pounds of fruits, vegetables, grains, and other food products to dozens of organizations and thousands of families, driving over 112,500 miles in the process.
