Genova Burns is Proud to Support the FeedNJ Program
April 7, 2021
Genova Burns LLC is proud to support the FeedNJ program, an important local initiative that was recently featured in a New Jersey Business Magazine article.
Approaching the one year anniversary of its FeedNJ program that purchases restaurant-prepared meals and serves them free of charge at local soup kitchens, FeedNJ has received several generous donations from New Jersey businesses wanting to join the fights against small business closures and food insecurity.
“FeedNJ recently received an exceedingly generous grant from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, which must be used within a four month period. Donations from Genova Burns and other businesses will enable the program to continue buying meals in bulk after the EDA’s grant period ends, therefore ensuring long-standing business for local eateries,” said SoupKitchen411 Co-Founder and CFO Philip Gentile.
“Our firm has always prided itself on supporting local communities when they’ve faced adversity. At a time when restaurants are struggling and New Jerseyans are making the impossible choices of how to spend limited income, FeedNJ’s work continues to be critically important,” said Genova Burns Chairman Angelo J. Genova, Esq. and firm Partner Rebecca Moll Freed, Esq.
To date, the FeedNJ campaign has served over 35,000 meals purchased from local restaurants which have been served at soup kitchens and collective spaces for free, and plans to expand operations to all 21 New Jersey counties in 2021. Restaurants are invited to partner with FeedNJ by visiting their website here or emailing info@soupkitchen411.
