Morristown-Beard School’s partnership with the Interfaith Food Pantry continued on Wednesday, February 19th as Mr. Sturgeon’s 8th Grade advisory volunteered at the organization’s headquarters in Morris Plains.
The students got a tour of the facility, learned about food insecurity, and helped make bags and organize food supplies that were donated to the organization.
Each 8th Grade advisory visited the IFP during the year. The next scheduled trip for the 8th Grade will take place on Thursday, April 9th when the entire class will volunteer at the Community FoodBank in Hillside.
