MAYOR HEALY: HELP IS HERE Meal Centers Established Across Jersey City

JERSEYCITY – Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy and officials from the Office of Emergency Management has expanded their hot meal distribution sites for today, Saturday November 3, 2012.

Free hot meals will be distributed at the Hudson County Boys and Girls Club, 1 Canal Street and the Ercel Webb Park Public Swimming Pool (Johnston Avenue entrance) from 5-7 p.m.

 “We’ve opened these types of centers across the city because we want to ensure that no one is forgotten in this crisis and we will be responsive to your needs,” Healy said from OEM Headquarters.

Officials are still counting the number of hot and cold ready-meals that have been distributed since Hurricane Sandy landed on Monday. The total is estimated that the number may be as high as 100,000 meals in the six days since the historic and devastating storm struck.///
