WE'RE STILL HERE - feeding hungry people . . .
" When it comes to the coronavirus, there’s vulnerable and then there’s vulnerable. Most of us worry about a short supply of hand sanitizer or toilet paper but some of us live meal to meal and that makes a place like Eva’s Village even more critical ," said NJTV news Senior Reporter David Cruz.

He interviewed our CEO, Dan Renaldo, and David Bein, our Community Kitchen chef director, about changes to Eva’s meal program during the COVID-19 outbreak. To protect the health and safety of staff and guests, meals “to go” replaced sit-down dining on March 17. We are still feeding 300 to 400 people a day and expect those numbers to rise as layoffs and business closings affect our community.
