Rodriguez, President & CEO of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. “Thanks to the support of The Westin Governor Morris, Blue Morel Restaurant, the featured chefs and their teams, and all of the generous donors, the funds raised will make an incredible impact for our hungry neighbors, especially as the holiday season approaches.”
