Summit Medical Group Foundation, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey and seven community/faith-based agencies are making a great impact through the Food, Health and Hope  program to help reduce the impact of diabetes among New Jersey adults with incomes below the federal poverty level. In New Jersey, diabetes affects urban areas more prevalently: In Essex, Passaic and Union counties, adults with the disease account for 7.2 to 10.6 percent of the population. 

“Diabetes is an epidemic among our neighbors in need,” explained Carlos M. Rodriguez, President and CEO of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. “Providing nutritious fruits and vegetables, along with health screenings, are important ways to help them maintain positive lifestyles, which is what makes our partnership with the Summit Medical Group Foundation so critical.”

Overall, an estimated 39,000* people are diagnosed with diabetes each year in this state and the epidemic continues to grow.   

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Broadway Beats Hungercharity musical will benefit the Food, Health and Hope: An Answer to Diabetesinitiative to support continued free diabetes screenings; fresh, healthy and diabetes-friendly food at no cost; access to nutrition programs; education on diabetes self-care; assistance with low-cost diabetes medication; eye and foot examinations and much more.
