$25K Granted to Jewish Organizations Teaneck Food Pantry – Patch

Posted By on June 25, 2022

TEANECK, NJ A Jewish social services organization in New Jersey has received a $25,000 grant from State Farm on Wednesday, to help support its Corner Market Food Pantry, a free food distribution site in Teaneck that serves more than 3,700 clients.

The Jewish Family & Children's Services of Northern New Jersey was one of 100 causes across 34 states, and one of six in New Jersey, to gain enough votes to receive the grant.

"Their ability to earn enough support to win this grant demonstrates the strength and commitment of our community, as well as our passion to help neighbors facing food insecurity," Closter State Farm Agent Anna Kim said.

In February, the insurance company accepted 4,000 applications for causes throughout the country that support communities in need, and 200 finalists were then posted online for the public to vote on.

"We are so excited to have been voted for and selected as a grant recipient," Katie Wolchko, the Jewish Family Services grant coordinator, said. "Food insecurity is a major concern, but we're here to help promote long-term health and well-being for our clients."

Several State Farm agents presented the check to the organization at Temple Emanu-El, a synagogue in Closter.

"We look forward to seeing the impact of this grant throughout North Jersey," agent Kim said.
