Storm Update: It’s Tme to Activate the NJ French Toast Alert System

TRENTON, NJ - If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to get the bread and the milk! We all agree that french toast is delicious, but it won’t do you any good if the power goes out.

We highly recommend purchasing nonperishable items as well, such as canned tuna, salmon, sardines, corned beef, beets, beans and fruit so you are prepared. It's not lobster tails and filet mignon, but it will get you through an emergency.

Here’s a shopping list of other items you may want to pick up today that will help keep you going that require neither cold nor heat to keep and prepare:
•Peanut butter or similar nut spreads and preserves (jellies, jams)
•Fresh fruits and vegetables
•Dried fruits and nuts
•Juices (particularly those that are not commonly found in the refrigerator section of the supermarket).
•Breads, muffins, bagels, tortillas
•Dry cereal or granola
•Powdered or canned milk
•Protein bars and protein shakes, such as Ensure.
•Water
