To help support Trenton residents who struggle to meet their family’s essential nutrition needs, The City of Trenton is hosting three emergency free food markets throughout the remainder of the year.
The markets will take place today, Friday, November 20, 2020, and on December 4 and 18 (also Friday’s) from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.. Members of the community can stop by the CURE Insurance Arena at 81 Hamilton Avenue, parking lot two, to take part.
Earlier this June, when COVID-19 began to affect Trenton, the city hosted the same event in hopes of aiding the in-need community. As we fight through the “second wave” of the pandemic, the City of Trenton is offering the emergency free food market once again.
The city partners with multiple organizations to produce this service. Key partners include Rolling Harvest Food, Zone 7, the American Dairy Association, Solebury Orchards and the United Way of Greater Mercer County.
During the market, volunteers will be equipped with the proper personal protection equipment [PPE] needed for a safe and clean exchange. This includes gloves, face masks and sanitizer. Volunteers will also be practicing safe social distancing procedures.
The event does not require registration or identification. In-need families of Trenton are encouraged to stop by and receive a variety produce including fresh vegetables, fruit and dairy products.
