At its first real estate breakfast, held at the Hahne & Co. building in Newark, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey recently honored Prudential Financial for its commitment and contribution to the growth of Newark.

“The Community FoodBank of New Jersey and Prudential have many things in common,” Debra Vizzi, CEO and president of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, said in a news release. “Both of their founders — Kathleen DiChiara and John Dryden — were committed to helping the working poor and to providing services and resources for everyone.”

The Community FoodBank said Prudential has made an investment of over $1 billion to the city, including the new $500 million Prudential Tower.

“Prudential’s investments in Newark are far-reaching for the state of New Jersey, and its contributions to the FoodBank — supporting our programs through funding and volunteer efforts — impact the lives of our neighbors in need every day. Prudential exemplifies a company with social responsibility and a commitment to the city of Newark.”

The FoodBank said it has had a partnership with Prudential since 1988 and has received over $3 million in total funding, in addition to volunteers. Prudential is also a supporter of the FoodBank’s Food Service Training Academy, a free, 16-week training program that aims to prepare residents for work in the culinary industry.

The Community FoodBank also thanked Hahne & Co. and L+M Development Partners for hosting the event.
