Fresh, refrigerated and frozen foods are available to northwestern New Jersey residents at sharply reduced prices through the Jolin Food Box program. The food assistance program offers a variety of ordering options, from breakfast-lunch-dinner combination packs to boxes of dinner entrees to special packages just for children. Each month features a variety of high-quality menu items from seafood and poultry to baked goods and prepared meals. The price of a single box ranges from $20 - $40. There is no limit to the number of boxes an individual or family can purchase, and the menu changes each month. The program even takes food stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Interested residents can order online with a credit card at www.jolinfoodbox.com or by calling Project Self-Sufficiency at 973-940-3500. Payment is made when the order is placed. The next deadline for placing an order is Tuesday, February 17th; delivery will be made to Project Self-Sufficiency on Saturday, February 28th. To find out more about the monthly food deliveries by the Jolin Food Box Program at Project Self-Sufficiency, or any of the other programs and services available at the agency, call 973-940-3500, or visit www.projectselfsufficiency.org.
