This week, members of the MBS football team and their families engaged in a service project to benefit nourish.NJ, a local food pantry. On Tuesday, the players and coaches met in the Main Gym, where they assembled more than 150 breakfast bags to help feed those in need.
With help from their families, the players brought in an assortment of healthy items for the breakfast bags, including small boxes of cereal, shelf-stable milk, juice boxes, water, granola bars and fruit cups. They then assembled the items into individual bags to help provide vital nutrition for local youngsters. Thank you to everyone who donated the food items so generously!
Community service is a cornerstone of the Morristown Beard School educational experience, and helps MBS students build character and gain self-confidence on their journey to becoming productive and socially responsible citizens.
Based in Morristown, nourish.NJ has been providing nutritious meals in a warm, safe and caring environment, free of charge, since 1984. The organization also assists its guests in accessing community resources, services, and educational programs.
