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.

"Though I am sad my time in the Key Club has come to a close, this event reminded me no matter where I go in life service can always be done."

There were 20,000 FDA-approved meals made in one day and each meal cost 25 cents to make.

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.
