"Salt Foundation is nothing short of a miracle for me and my son. Since transferring its activities in Jersey City, I have had to good luck of getting the food that my son and I need. I am retired and have had no extra income to support myself and my son. I was unfortunate to have used up available savings to support another son who became a victim of mugging in Virginia earlier in 2021, causing me to support him for his hospitalization and rehabilitation. That put an extreme strain on my limited finances and the help given free each week by Claudia Wheeler's Salt Foundation has solved an important problem for us."
