The A-Team acknowledges there may be some concerns regarding food safety as the idea of a large quantity of food being distributed by an independent group of students is unorthodox. While eradicating food insecurity on college campuses is our goal, the A-Team will not try to achieve this goal by putting anyone at risk. The A-Team is officially a part of the Delaware Valley Food Distribution Network and works in partnership with Philabundance, Touch NJ, and the South Jersey Food Bank to help provide food safely to those in need. All of our partners who handle and provide us with the food we distribute are certified and abide by the laws and regulations put in place by the state of New Jersey and the Federal Government.
