PATERSON, NJ - More than 1,000 senior citizens across Paterson are receiving non-perishable items that will provide up to 40 meals, thanks to a partnership between The City of Paterson, Community Food Bank of NJ, and United Way.
According to a statement by Mayor Andre Sayegh’s office the packages, which began getting delivered on Wednesday will include canned and boxed food. Senior citizens are also expected to receive produce and frozen meats in the coming weeks.
“We have to look out for each other, and especially Paterson’s most vulnerable,” Mayor Andre Sayegh said. “We are thankful to the Senior Services Division for helping to put this effort together, and, as always, for the support of our partners that are helping to keep Paterson healthy.”
