East Rutherford, NJ — With the COVID-19 pandemic hitting Bergen County extremely hard The Meadowlands Racetrack wanted to help the community in any way possible.
After learning the Meadowlands YMCA was working with Table to Table to distribute meals to families in need, The Meadowlands Racetrack and its restaurant partner Ark Meadowlands pitched in to help feed the local community.
The racetrack donated more than 500 meals along with fresh vegetables, cases of water, gatorade and soda to the Meadowlands YMCA. Employees volunteered their time to help pack up the meal boxes and bag the vegetables.
“When we learned that our community was in need, we knew we could help immediately,” said Jason Settlemoir, COO & GM of The Meadowlands Racetrack. “I’d like to thank Jennifer Jordan for organizing this food drive for us and Marianne Rotella, Marcello Esposito, Lisa Smoter, Rachel Ryan and Raul Perez for working so hard on getting this done.
“We are looking forward to our return to racing when it is safe to do so. We encourage everyone to remain at home and stay healthy and we look forward to seeing everyone back at the track.”
