BLOOMFIELD, NJ – In a time of uncertainty, the Suburban Essex Chamber of Commerce is committed to helping the community during this very difficult time.

A major facet of keeping things up and running is making sure residents, first responders and township workers are fueled, especially with many grocery stores temporarily short on some essential food basics.

The chamber wants residents to know that Bloomfield eateries are stepping up in a big way to ensure families are fed.
