ROXBURY, NJ – People having difficulty putting food on their tables, as the COVID-19 crisis continues, will be able to get some placed for free in their cars next week in Roxbury.
The Table of Hope Mobile Food Pantry will be in town on Tuesday, April 28 for a “mobile food drop,” the Roxbury Mayor and Council announced today.
Taking place from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the Horseshoe Lake Park parking lot on Eyland Avenue in Succasunna, the event will be open to all, said officials.
At the food drop, the Rev. Sidney Williams, volunteers from Morris Habitat for Humanity and Roxbury Township volunteers will place bags of food into the trunks of cars. There will be no income guidelines or pre-registration requirements.
However, there will be some rules: “As a reminder, in order to maintain proper social distancing, those who attend must drive up to get in line,” said the township. “Please do not get out of your car; food will be placed in your trunk.”
Table of Hope is operated by the Spring Street Community Development Corporation. Its Mobile Food Pantry distributes food to those in need throughout Morris County.
“In this time of great need, the Table of Hope Program is another way the township is responding to help residents,” Roxbury Mayor Bob DeFillippo said in a statement.
Those needing more information about the event can call (973)448-2000.
