The sales professionals at Tarvin enthusiastically participated in the Table to Table "Bag a Lunch, Help a Bunch," initiative, raising $1,000. Table to Table is a community-based food rescue program that collects prepared and perishable food that would otherwise be wasted and delivers it to organizations serving the hungry in the Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Passaic counties of New Jersey.

In 2018 alone, this initiative enabled Table to Table to rescue enough food to serve 3.5 million meals.

Through efforts such as this, Tarvin demonstrates its commitment to making our communities a better place to live.
