RANDOLPH, NJ- Table of Hope and Morris Habitat for Humanity will host a free mobile food distribution at the Morris Habitat Restore on Wednesday, July 8 to assist families in need during this time of crisis. All residents are welcome and there are no eligibility requirements.
The contactless, drive-through food pick up will take place at the Morris Habitat ReStore parking lot located at 274 South Salem Street in Randolph from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon. The food distribution consists of a variety of free groceries, including fresh produce, dairy and canned goods. Face masks are required for everyone attending the event.
“People who have never needed help before are finding themselves in a different position during this pandemic,” said Blair Schleicher Wilson, CEO of Morris Habitat for Humanity. “Many need a helping hand, and we’re mobilizing our volunteers and local officials to help Table of Hope further its goal of feeding those in need.”
Table of Hope was founded by Rev. Dr. Sidney Williams, pastor of Bethel Church in Morristown and Board member of Morris Habitat. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Dr. Williams converted a bus used to pick up food into a mobile food pantry to deliver groceries directly to local neighborhoods. Since that time, Table of Hope has served more than 9,000 families and delivered more than 220 tons of food. Table of Hope receives food from the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, local farms and food service companies.
