An organization in Englewood Cliffs is going above and beyond to put food on the table for families in need.

It's called Table to Table. The Englewood Cliffs organization "rescues" food from roughly 200 donors like supermarkets or restaurants where food would normally be thrown out.

They take that same food and deliver it on a same-day basis to over 80 community organizations - free of charge.

Table to Table pioneered the fight for hunger in New Jersey in 1999 by becoming the first and only food rescue at the time.

Their mission has always been to stop wasting tons of healthy, usable, fresh food and putting it in the bellies of those in need.

Table to Table serves mainly Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Passaic counties where the collected food is used in countless soup kitchens, homeless shelters, after-school programs and homes for the elderly.

Table to Table says its goal is to deliver 18 million meals this year.

And you too can help fight hunger. Table to Table says they need the public's support in order to reach their goal.
