Meals provided by Salvation Army NJ as part of its COVID-19 response

COVID-19 exacerbated a number of problems across the Garden State, one of the most pressing — feeding our vulnerable citizens. As part of its response to the pandemic, the Salvation Army New Jersey Division provided 1,834,670 meals between March 17 and May 15, both hot and bagged-to-go. During the same period, the Salvation Army delivered more than 85,234 bags of groceries to individuals and families. And by working with other nonprofits like the Foodbank of NJ, it has been able to keep over 31 food pantries open across the state.
