Interview: Food banks stock up ahead of possible second wave of COVID-19

The steady rise in the number of new coronavirus infections statewide is stoking fears of an even greater increase as colder weather approaches. New Jersey’s three largest food banks are bracing for the worst and stockpiling pantry staples in anticipation of a second wave — and the possibility of more business closures, less federal aid and kinks in the food supply chain.

NJ Spotlight News contributor Jon Hurdle talks with Anchor Briana Vannozzi as part of our ongoing series, Hunger in New Jersey.
