The Community Food Bank of New Jersey distributed 2,000 holiday food boxes in the parking lot of Kean University in Union.
The drive-thru event was meant to help Union County residents dealing with food insecurity as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last year, CFBNJ handed out 44,000 pounds of food and about 5,700 turkeys and the organization says the needs of the community are even greater this year.
Anyone interested in supporting CFBNJ's Annual Turkey Drive can do so at the organization's website.
