Newark holds food distribution event amid high inflation, higher expenses

Newark's Drive Up and Go Food Distribution event was held today at Ferry Street and Niagara/Chambers streets. 
The event comes as high inflation and higher expenses make it hard for many families to put food on the table. 
A new report released Tuesday found consumer prices surged 8.3% in August.
Stocks fell Tuesday because inflation remains so high, with the Dow losing close to 1,300 points.
