  • trained 70 people in the culinary school;
  • Served over 100,000 meals at the soup kitchen;
  • provided over 100,000 meals to low income people through Promise Contract Catering Services-much of this is through meals on wheels;
  • employed several low income people full time through catering employment;
  • served over 20,000 meals to economically challenged people at A Better World Café-in the Reformed Church in Highland Park;
  • provided medical testing to people who can't afford it through the Medical School at RWJ hospital.
