TASK has experienced a remarkable year

As we move closer to the holiday season it’s only natural that we remember and reflect on all the wonderful events that have happened throughout 2010.

  • By year end, we will have served approximately 170,000 meals through our meal service program to the truly needy of the Trenton community.

  • TASK’s Adult Education Program has grown to nearly a hundred students, 6 of whom have passed their GED, two are now taking college level courses, another two have entered job training programs.

  • TASK’s performing arts group, The SHARE Project, entered the 2010 Shoprite Expressions of Hunger video contest and was named a Grand prize winner. Their group photo was printed on 150,000 boxes of cheerios distributed throughout September for National Hunger Awareness Month.
