SEATTLE (Waste Advantage): Asbury Park, NJ has been awarded a $20,000 Sustainable Jersey grant funded by PSED Foundation. Five $20,000 grants, 12 $10,000 grants and 40 $2,000 grants were distributed to recipients across 17 New Jersey counties.  The grant awards will fund a range of projects including food waste recycling; green infrastructure and sustainable landscaping; green fairs; composting; green business recognition; environmental resource inventories; outdoor classrooms; pollinator gardens and more.

“We are thrilled the City of Asbury Park was selected to receive a $20,000 grant from Sustainable Jersey and we are grateful to the PSEG foundation for funding the program,” Mayor John Moor said in a statement.  The grant will help support an 18-month-long program in Asbury Park to link restaurants with food banks to provide them with unsold food, Mayor Moor explained.

“Through the program, we aim to reduce food waste in the City and address food insecurity within our community,” he added. The PSEG Foundation has contributed $3.1 million dollars in funding to the Sustainable Jersey grants program for municipalities and schools over the past 12 years.
