The Community Kitchen at Eva's Village

Serving at Eva’s allows our employees to connect with the community that they work in while providing a necessary service to those less fortunate.

On January 26th Eva’s Village, New Jersey’s most comprehensive anti-poverty organization will welcome a volunteer team from Machinery Services Corp., a local Paterson business owned by Rich Taylor, to serve the noon meal in its Community Kitchen program. The Taylors have proudly operated their successful business in Paterson, NJ since 1978 and have always believed in giving back to the community. “Machinery Services Corp. and the Taylor family have been community partners with Eva’s Village for many years and look forward to our day of service helping those most in need,” stated Mr. Taylor. “Serving at Eva’s allows our employees to connect with the community that they work in while providing a necessary service to those less fortunate.”

Many corporations have corporate giving programs, donating some of their profits or resources to charity. The Fund-A-Meal (FAM) program at Eva’s Village is a corporate sponsorship opportunity, which assists the organization in feeding the men, women, and children in Eva’s Community Kitchen and sheltering programs for one day. Corporate sponsorships allow sponsors to directly touch the organization’s mission and advance its goals to combat hunger and homelessness. In addition to sponsoring the kitchen program, corporate volunteers serve the noon meal on the day of their sponsorship.

In return, Fund-A-Meal sponsors are entitled to receive various benefits including, but not limited to, signage in Eva’s Community Kitchen, visibility on Eva’s social network sites, honorable mention in the organization’s quarterly news publication and press exposure. “Many businesses are looking for ways to truly give back to the communities they serve,” stated Marie Reger. “Our FAM program gives them the opportunity to get their brand recognized in a positive way, while helping hundreds of impoverished individuals receive the care they need for at least one day. FAM is one of those great opportunities that corporations can ‘put their signature on’ that will reach thousands and formidably demonstrate their commitment to being a socially responsible business!”
