It’s just about one year ago that Gino Reina contacted Family Promise with an offer to provide a monthly donation of hot food to the Walk-in Dinner Program. Obviously we enthusiastically accepted! Since that time, Gino has been generously funding the donation from the wonderful Francesca’s Restaurant, currently from the Elmwood Park Location. Manager Jeff Lucca makes sure the delicious food is hot and ready to go.
With numbers of meals served daily in Hackensack rising steadily, we currently provide about 200 meals every day, seven days a week, to shelter residents and to the food insecure community at large. The extra trays of food each month are extremely helpful!
Our sincere thanks to Gino, Jeff, and everyone involved at Francesca’s! Francesca’s in Glen Rock has also been generous to our Camp Lots-of-Fun. Please support this wonderful restaurant at either location. The food will not disappoint!
