Table, Asbury Park, NJ
Asbury Park Dinner Table provided more than 60,000 fresh meals over 5 months and the grant helped restaurants continue paying employees despite the executive order limiting restaurants to takeout for a period of time.
The grant also allowed St. James Health to go door to door and provide outreach, testing and primary care exams to seniors who were unable or unwilling to go to a public testing site.
In total, over 500 seniors and more than 600 walk-in/drive in patients were tested during a critical time.
