5 Locations, 21,000 Pounds of Food

Kiwanis food distribution at Boonton High School on Saturday afternoon, February 13.

Thank you to all who made our first Tri-Town Kiwanis Club Food Distribution a huge success!!! On this bitter cold holiday weekend, over 20 volunteers gathered this afternoon to distribute over 10,000lbs of food in just under 2 hours – That’s Love!!! ❤

 

The cars would not stop coming, displaying the need for more food drives and distributions in our community.
With just a few boxes of food remaining we donated them to the local Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry along with other families in need.
We even established a delivery crew for those who could not safely come out

Our free food distribution program is spearheaded by Kiwanis Club of Greater Roxbury President Cain Pope which was started last month with 4,000 pounds of food in Roxbury.

Together we are serving communities impacted by the pandemic.

We are proud to announce that Kiwanis Club volunteers have raised or donated enough money to distribute over 21,000 pounds of food in Roxbury, Parsippany, Netcong, Hopatcong, Boonton, South Orange, and Maplewood.

Kiwanis is an acronym meaning “Kiwanis IWhere A Need IServed”.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone.
