PLANT A SMILE

As part of Volunteer Week 2021, 50 families painted 250 flower pots that were donated to local food pantry clients.  They were provided with the pots, soil, and cilantro seeds to plant their own spices!

 SNACK ATTACK

As part of Robbinsville Night Off, we hosted our first Snack Attack. 

65 families came together from their own homes and packaged

1,300 snack bags for local schools and nonprofits

Due to COVID-19 Restrictions, we could not hold our signature event, The Hunger Project.  The event, which brings together 2,000 people at the Robbinsville High School, is always an event the community looks forward to. We work as a team to package 150,000 meals in 4 hours to donate to the local food bank, Mercer Street Friends.  Since that was not possible in 2020, we were able to host smaller scale events, highlighted below!

GIVING TUESDAY BASKET DRIVE

This past Giving Tuesday we collected donations and prepared 122 baskets filled with toiletries including shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hats, gloves and masks. We distributed them to local community partners.

ONE FIRKIN MEAL AT A TIME

We were able to hold a much smaller scale Hunger Project, held at the Firkin Tavern in Ewing. Smaller groups of 20, socially distanced, worked together over 4 sessions to package 10,000 meals to distribute to food pantries in Mercer County.
