FAIRFIELD, NJ – On August 7-8, representatives of Embrace Relief and the FBI Newark Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association traveled across New Jersey to deliver 600 pounds of meat to families in need at five locations throughout the state. Food was distributed at the Sussex County Division of Social Services in Newton; at Eva’s Kitchen in Paterson; at the Keyport Ministerium and Food Pantry; at Elijah’s Promise Food Kitchen in New Brunswick; and in The Heights neighborhood of Jersey City.
In each location, staffers from Embrace Relief and the FBI Newark CAAA handed out the packages of fresh, frozen meat, each of which weighed two pounds. For struggling families, this free meat distribution will be an invaluable source of nutrition for the days and weeks ahead.
The distribution event is part of Embrace Relief’s commitment to providing hunger relief in the United States. These efforts include food distribution to more than 22,000 Americans as part of our International Hunger Relief 2023 campaigns, as well as our Mobile Market, which travels to local North Jersey communities to provide fresh produce as well as basic household supplies.

This program was also a continuation of the long-standing partnership between Embrace Relief and the FBI Newark CAAA, who have worked together for over five years to provide aid for vulnerable people and to promote peace and positive change in New Jersey communities. Later this month, the two organizations will join again to hand out backpacks filled with school supplies for underprivileged children in school districts around the state.
