Restaurant Food Goes to Charities

When Gov. Phil Murphy ordered the casinos to temporarily close last Monday to help stem the spread of the coronavirus, it left them with an abundance of perishable food. Since the restaurants inside the casinos were also shut down and the food would likely spoil, they decided to help the local community. Tuesday’s deliveries, from Caesars Entertainment, fell upon the shoulders of Jerry Beaver, food and beverage director for Bally’s and Caesars, and two other Bally’s employees. Now it will go to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Southern Branch, the Salvation Army Atlantic City Corps and the Atlantic City Rescue Mission. And the Funny Farm Rescue & Sanctuary in Hamilton Township, Atlantic County.
