Kiwanis Club of Greater Roxbury is giving away 100 boxes of food to people suffering food insecurity during their drive-through Free Holiday Food Distribution on Monday, Dec. 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Kiwanis Park, located at 9 Makin Lane, in Succasunna.
Recipients must live in Roxbury, Ledgewood, Succasunna, Kenvil, Mount Arlington or Landing. All recipients must register in advance at Roxburykiwanis.org.
“Our food distribution for the needy is focused on sustaining good nutrition, health and most of all human dignity by providing a means for the individual to meet their full potential and to silence the pain hunger brings,” said Frank Cahill, Lt. Governor NJ Kiwanis District.
Each box contains 35-40 pounds of canned food, fresh produce and other groceries. Recipients will drive up to the distribution site where volunteers will put the food right in the vehicle.
Kiwanis Club of Greater Roxbury does not have a paid staff and are all volunteers. They are committed to provide an efficient and effective system for distributing food to alleviate hunger in our community, one family at a time.
“We believe that by helping one child, you help the world,” club president Cain Pope said. “An estimated 48.8 million Americans, including 16.2 million children, live in households that lack the means to get enough nutritious food on a regular basis. As many as 1 in 4 kids could face hunger because of the coronavirus.”
