The Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) is a free program available to low income seniors in New Jersey who are over 60 years old. Participants receive a box of groceries once a month–including items such as cereal, pasta and canned goods–as well as any fresh fruit and produce available. The FoodBank provided 50 boxes to residents of New Community Gardens Senior in January.
For more than 50 years, New Community Corporation has walked the walk of social justice, helping residents of inner cities improve the quality of their lives to reflect individual God-given dignity and personal achievement. After all, NCC was birthed from the literal ashes of the civil disorders of 1967 by a core group of Black community leaders and White allies, including a young priest named William Linder. Together, they modeled through word and deed the moral principle and reality that Black Lives Matter.
Today, just as in 1967, NCC joins in solidarity with all those who seek justice and an end to police brutality and racism.
