Rahway Food For Friends, A NJ Nonprofit Corporation

"Feeding the Whole Person"

Rahway Food For Friends Diabetic Healthier Giving Program 


This campaign began in 2012  providing Diabetic Needs and Healthier Foods to our clients with Type I and II Diabetes.  We partnered with the Rahway RWJ Hospital in 2014 to offer glucose testings during our program. The RD, Lauren Berenstein inspects our food and grades each bag prepared by our Executive Director and her team of students. 


The program currently provides nutritious supplemental packages for 60 families. 


The program has extended with a new intiative in 2018.  "Lunch and Learn" is a program collaborative with RWJ Rahway Hospital, Rahway Food For Friends and the Rahway YMCA to have Diabetic clients educated on Diabetes prevention and management, eat a healthy lunch, and be offered an exercise regimen at the YMCA free for 3 months. 


The program has been very successful and our clients are eager to participate monthly!
