Greetings Senior Center Members,

While we have been dealing with and talking about COVID19 for weeks, time marches on. Today is Memorial Day, and on that note I'd like to focus today on honoring our fallen military heroes.

Though somber as it is, and sadness fills our hearts, today is the day we honor our deceased soldiers. We are not heading out to the malls, watching a parade or attending a wedding today. The traditions that our country has created have come to a dramatic halt which gives us pause to reflect on our men and women who have kept us a free nation.

So on this Memorial Day, please take a few minutes out of your day to reflect and remember all those who died so that all of us can be free.

And to those who celebrate: Eid Mubarak to you and everyone in your family!

Our next restaurant contest, with a tremendous thank you to our Mayor, is going to be on Facebook. Please join our FB community if you are a member of our senior center or live in town! And if you are not a member of the center yet, I am happy to send an application to you. I promise, we will be opening again!!
Stay safe!
My best,

New Jersey to Launch Online Grocery Shopping for SNAP Recipients
Amazon, Walmart, ShopRites & The Fresh Grocers to Accept SNAP Online Orders
  New Jerseyans enrolled in the state’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will be able to use their benefits to order groceries online starting next week. Online shopping will be available through Amazon and participating Walmarts, ShopRites and The Fresh Grocers.
NJ SNAP recipients will be able to use their benefits card to order groceries from Amazon starting on May 27. Walmarts, ShopRites and The Fresh Grocers that that provide online shopping will also accept online ordering with SNAP benefits starting on May 28.
“Online grocery shopping is another important step in our efforts to get affordable groceries to New Jerseyans during this public health emergency,” Human Services Commissioner Carole Johnson said. “Having the option to order groceries online is more important than ever, as we all work together to stay-at-home as much as possible. 
Recipients will be able to use their Families First Electronic Benefits Transfer card to purchase eligible groceries from the participating retailers. Under federal rules, SNAP benefits cannot be used to pay for delivery fees.
To learn more, recipients can visit to register their EBT c ard. Visit here to learn about Walmart’s SNAP online program. Any Walmart, ShopRite or The Fresh Grocer t hat currently provides online shopping will also accept online ordering with SNAP benefits.
For those New Jersey families who m ay have difficulty getting to the grocery store - and that may be for a variety of different reasons -- using SNAP benefits online can make the basics of feeding yourself or your family a little less complicated,” said Human Services Assistant Commissioner Natasha Johnson, who directs the Division of Family Development that oversees NJ SNAP. "We continue to urge residents to visit to learn more and apply for food assistance and other benefits."
Please let us know if you need assistance applying for SNAP benefits.
