Great News for Local Charities (and local restaurants, too!)
Congratulations to the HealthBarn Foundation, the Ridgewood Chamber of Commerce and participating local restaurants! Lots of hard work and coordination went into securing a $1M state grant to provide 100,000 high-quality, nutrionally balanced meals for families facing food insecurity. At the same time, this $1M grant will also support local restaurants. We extend a collective, heartfelt thank you to all those involved in securing this grant. It truly is a WIN-WIN for our community!!
