The Shannon Rose Irish Pub does it again. As part of its ongoing commitment to helping the local community, the local pub in Woodbridge, with another pub in Clifton and one coming soon in Ramsey, recently donated $5,000 to Table to Table, a community-based food rescue program based out of Englewood Cliffs.
Table to Table collects prepared and perishable food from restaurants, supermarkets, and other food vendors. The food would otherwise be wasted; instead, the group delivers the food pickups to organizations that serve the hungry.
Last year they said they delivered more than 6.5 million meals to more than 50 agencies, including elder care facilities, drug rehab centers, homeless shelters, homes for victims of domestic violence, HIV day centers, and pantries serving the “working poor.”
The organization serves the needy in Bergen, Hudson, Essex and Passaic counties. They can be reached at their website.
