CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham High Key Club pulled off an herculean task, packaging more than 20,000 meals at Chatham High on Saturday that will benefit food pantries and soup kitchens throughout New Jersey.

Chatham High senior Kate Mirabelli of the Key Club organized the event with the local Outreach Program, which included 100 volunteers.

"Today went perfectly," Mirabelli said. "After planning and fundraising for months, I am happy to say everything was a success. We made over 20,000 meals with no complications. It was awesome to see our community come together to make a huge impact and have fun in the process.

All the money needed for fund the event was raised by the CHS Key Club, along with donations from Millburn Key Club and Chatham Kiwanis.
