Hunger Free NJ -   Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) is a program to help families buy food for their children who normally would get free or reduced-price meals at school before the closures. The benefit for each eligible, school-age child is $416, which covers the days schools were closed due to COVID19. The funds will be available when you activate your card, which is similar to a bank card and protected with a Personal Identification Number (PIN).


Deliver Together  High school students from New Jersey have launched Deliver Together to positively impact those affected by the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Working together with community leaders, we are organizing free-delivery and errand-runs to mitigate the spread of the disease among those most vulnerable. We believe that it is our obligation to provide aid to those in-need and protect the them from unnecessarily journeying outside the safety of their homes. All the funds provided will cover operational costs, including initiating a website, compensating for gas, and protective gear for volunteers. This initiative will drastically lower the chances of elderly coming in contact with the disease by ensuring they remain within the confines of their home. Deliver Together is counting on your support to help move this initiative forward and defeat and the novel Coronavirus. We welcome any donations and suggestions and are extremely grateful for those who support this initiative!
