Woods Edge Apartment Homes to host Pop-Up Mobile Pantry Program
The Burlington County community is partnering with the Food Bank of South Jersey.
MAPLE SHADE NJ – The number of New Jersey residents who have uncertain access to healthy food is expected to increase by 56 percent by the end of 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing the total number of “food insecure” people to 1.2 million or 13.5 percent of the population – according to a recent report from the Community Food Bank of New Jersey (CFBNJ). In an effort to assist those struggling with food insecurities, Woods Edge Apartment Homes is partnering with the Food Bank of South Jersey to provide a Pop-Up Mobile Pantry every fourth Thursday of the month from now through April 22, 2021.
Those in need of food assistance can walk-up or drive-up to Woods Edge Apartment Homes located at 220 S. Lenola Road in Maple Shade from 11am to 12:30pm on selected dates. Masks must be worn to be served. Practice safe social distancing. New Jersey proof of residency is required. Call Woods Edge Apartment Homes to confirm hours and requirements prior to attending.
The Pop-Up Mobile Pantry provides food staples for individuals, families and seniors to make nutritious meals. Food will include: Dairy, produce, frozen meat/poultry and pantry goods (i.e, canned and boxed food).
“One in five New Jersey children are projected to experience food insecurity this year,” said Karen Lang, Property Manager of Woods Edge Apartment Homes. “We must do our part by addressing the immediate need for food faced by struggling families and individuals. This pop-up pantry is one way we are helping to provide relief. We would also like to extend our gratitude to the Food Bank of South Jersey for partnering with us to support our community in these efforts.”
