BORDENTOWN, NJ — Senator Troy Singleton (D-Burlington) has brought his Food Truck Fridays back this summer, and his first stop on the tour was Bordentown.
As part of his and his office’s effort to address food insecurity, Singleton has partnered once again with the Wanna Pizza This? Food Truck to deliver meals consisting of a 10 inch hoagie, fruit and a beverage to families in need throughout the 7th Legislative District. In total, the food truck tour will stop in 16 towns throughout the district over 6 weeks, providing 125 meals at each stop, equaling 2,000 meals over the course of the summer.
"Food insecurity has been, and will continue to be, an issue I am very concerned about," said Singleton. "However, it is even more of a priority in the summer months when many children do not have access to their school lunch programs. That is why we are partnering once again with our local school districts and Wanna Pizza This? for our 2nd Annual Food Truck Friday tour to make sure these meals go to those families who need them the most"
Singleton kicked off the tour on Friday, July 9 with two stops at Bordentown Regional High School and Clara Barton Elementary School, where 250 lunches were distributed to community members.
"In all, we distributed 250 meals to Bordentown families, and we look forward to continuing this program in the weeks ahead in communities throughout our district," Singleton noted.
