Outside Jersey City
  • There are currently over 1 million hungry people in New Jersey and close to 300,000 of them are children. With rising rates of poverty throughout the state and continuing reductions to federal benefits like SNAP, there are fewer and fewer options to help address this gap. However, Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin has come up with a package of 14 bills that help address hunger on a number of levels including farmer assistance, food deserts, food waste, access to nutrition plans and more.

  • Orale has officially opened their Hoboken location. Located at 1426 Willow Ave, the restaurant will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays. 
  • Brownstone Pancake Factory is expanding and opening a new location in Englewood Cliffs. It's currently under construction.
