Community volunteers gathered in small groups at the Hightstown Elks Lodge in East Windsor on March 20 to help package 17,928 meals to fight local food insecurity.

The 83 cases of food packed during the End Hunger event are being distributed to area families in need through RISE Food Pantry in Hightstown, Shine and Inspire in Lawrenceville, Ginny’s Pantry and Clara’s Heart LLC in Hamilton, and the Mt. Carmel Guild and The Salvation Army Trenton Citadel Corps in Trenton.

The Hightstown Elks Lodge 1955 on Hickory Corner Road has been serving the community for over 50 years.

Be Kind is a Robbinsville based non-profit formed by friends and fellow Rotary Club members in July 2020 as an emergency response effort during the coronavirus pandemic and their efforts continue today.
