MADISON, NJ - Madison Rotary sponsors an enthusiastic and community -minded service club at Madison High School called INTERACT. A major focus of the group is combating food insecurity mirroring their sponsor’s focus.
The Program, led by Rotarian John Hogan, is titled Madison Ends Hunger. In addition to their bi-weekly pickups of food donations at the doorsteps of families participating in this program, Interact will be collecting food donations at the site of Rotary’s Community Shredding Day, on Saturday March 27 from 9 am until 12 noon.
The shredding day and food donation location will be at Municipal Parking Lot #1 by the Ambulance Squad at the corner of Prospect Street and Kings Road.
This Interact program, which began in July of 2020, now has 80 families participating. The collected food is then distributed to Madison’s First Baptist Church food pantry. The program will be on-going or at least until the Covid caused food insecurity ends, said organizers.
"When organizing your documents for shredding or household items for ReStore to be delivered on the 27 th , please consider tossing in a bag of non-perishable groceries as a donation to this cause", said Carmela Moeller of the Madison Rotary. "The students would appreciate your help".
