Feed to Give was founded by Basking Ridge High School junior Carys Law, whose father, Simon Law connected her to Lawson Foods, a wholesale food distributor. The fundraiser she designed has now been run in three local towns- Warren, New Providence and Watchung. In addition to the fundraising chicken sales, the family has donated handsomely to local foodbanks in the form of vegetables. Overall the fundraisers have collected more than $20,000 for nonprofits and foodbanks in this part of New Jersey.
“We are so happy to be able to give back to our local communities,” said Simon Law, owner of Lawson foods. “I am proud of my daughter and her great idea.”
On June 3, the pickups will run from 10 a.m. to Noon.
“We were pleased and surprised to see how organized this whole operation was working with Feed to Give,” said New Providence-Our Community For All Executive Director, Patricia Jacobs. “Things ran like clockwork.” Volunteers run the process from start to finish.
New Providence- Our Community For All was founded with support from the Grotta Fund for Senior Care to help New Providence become a Lifelong Town. Their focus is on listening to adults in New Providence about their hopes and needs for living long and full lives in town. After June 3rd their next effort is a community -wide art project, where families, groups or individuals can make decorative banners, while safely at home, that will be combined into one public installation in Centennial Park on Flag Day, June 14th. Supported by a local girl scout troop, fabric has been cut and is ready and free for families to order via this link: https://forms.gle/9sVg2STHPnqFAyiY8
