To ensure everyone New Brunswick has what they need to live the healthiest life possible, the Urban Revival Project is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by working to make nutritious food and community engagement opportunities more accessible to residents. Recognizing the pandemic has brought on financial challenges for families, Urban Revival Project is implementing multiple initiatives. The Grocery Bags to Families in Crisis and Healthy Baby, Happy Baby initiatives provide fresh produce and formula to parents with young children. To serve older children, the Urban Revival Project is providing meals through its Boys and Girls Mentoring Institute, while the Dining with Dignity initiative feeds individuals experiencing homelessness. In addition, children are receiving free ice cream through fun distribution events in the community. By the end of this project, the Urban Revival Project will have advanced the existing response efforts in the state, which can inform an equitable recovery and long-term solutions throughout New Jersey.
