New Grants Awarded

Janssen Pharmaceuticals has awarded Mercer Street Friends a grant of $20,000 for the Food Bank’s Healthy Choices program. This funding will support our work to channel wholesome and healthy food and provide related nutritional support services to people in our community who face the pain and indignity of hunger.

The Merancas Foundation has awarded Mercer Street Friends a grant of $30,000 for the Trenton Community School Initiative (TCSI). The funds are targeted for year one planning and preparation that will lead to the opening of Trenton’s first community school next September at Rivera Middle School.
