On Monday, September 9th, Noreen Drucker, a volunteer at the Interfaith Food Pantry (IFP) of Morris County, visited campus to speak to the 8th Grade Class about this year’s community service partnership with the organization.

Once again, each 8th Grade advisory will visit the IFP during the course of the year to learn about hunger in the community and also to support their important volunteer work. The first visit will take place on Wednesday, October 2nd when Mrs. Rachel’s advisory volunteers at the IFP.

To prepare the students for their service work, Ms. Drucker offered some background information about the IFP, which is located in Morris Plains and is committed to ending hunger and supporting self-sufficiency.

The IFP’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of Morris County residents in need by providing access to food, nutrition education and related resources; provide hands on opportunities for neighbors to help neighbors; and educate the public about the issues of hunger in our area.

She told the students that even though Morris County is among the wealthiest counties in the nation, need still exists everywhere. She also brainstormed with the students about ways they can help the food pantry provide food for families who don’t have enough to eat.
