Grab & Go Project
 
We began our Grab & Go project in the spring of 2020 to support our local small businesses and provide lunches to hospital and emergency workers fighting the battle against COVID-19 in and around our community.
 
Working together with the Montgomery Business Association, we raised money to purchase meals from local restaurants, delis and cafes and delivered the meals to those on the frontlines of the pandemic.
 
 
Between April 3 and June 19, we made deliveries on 68 days (6 days a week). Each delivery included at least 50 Grab & Go lunches prepared by a local food establishment and delivered by a volunteer driver. 
 
Deliveries were made to one of three hospital locations: RWJ Somerset, RWJ New Brunswick or Penn Medicine Plainsboro. We were also able to purchase sweet treats from a local baker and chocolatier that we included with meal deliveries and shared with Montgomery Police, Fire & EMS workers.
 
Members of the community also donated drinks, chips, cookies to the local food establishment to include with the Grab & Go meals. Many a food establishment added extra meals as a thank you to the frontline workers. A local Girl Scout Troop provided thank you notes for hospital workers that we also delivered.
 
Participating local businesses included Beniamino’s Cucina, 206 Corner Deli, Midpoint Mediterranean Grill, Buy The Cup, Alfonso’s, Playa Bowls, Robinson’s Chocolates, Sweet Gourmet, New World Pizza & Cafe, Genteel’s Brick Oven Pizza, Bagel Barn, Chris’ Cafe, Rocky Hill Inn and CafeMerica.
