The Islamic Society of Central Jersey (ISCJ) held a community food event in the South Brunswick Senior Center parking lot on Christmas Day to feed those in need.

Mr. C’s Grease Truck, from Rutgers University’s Cook College campus, was on site making a warm boxed lunch that included bacon, egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches, tater tots, fruit and hot chocolate.

In addition, the South Brunswick Dunkin Donuts, located in the strip mall near ShopRite, provided munchkins for the patrons.

Two dozen volunteers, young and old, socially distanced and masked, helped people maneuver the drive-through set up. Not only were meals provided to people who came out to the Senior Center but meals were also distributed to the homeless and the needy in New Brunswick, Trenton and at the Ozanam Homeless Shelter in Edison.

The ISCJ holds a drive-through food pantry from noon to 2 p.m. every Saturday at 4145 Route 1 south in the Monmouth Junction section of South Brunswick.
