The statistics supplied by event organizers are both staggering and sobering: every 3.6 seconds someone dies of malnutrition or starvation and, in New Jersey and New York, one in five children relies on food stamps to provide daily meals.
With that disturbing reality as a backdrop, hundreds of Rotarians gathered on March 7 for 'End Hunger 3.6' at Drew University, which resulted in the packaging of more than 225,000 meals for distribution to the New Jersey Salvation Army, The Table of Hope and the Market Street Mission in Morristown, Eva's Village in Paterson, St. John's Soup Kitchen and other organizations -- in sum, 40 sites dedicated to feeding the hungry in the Garden State.
Among the volunteers were Summit residents David Dietze and Susan Watts, both members of the Summit - New Providence Rotary Club, who donned hairnets and plastic gloves and jumped in to help assemble the thousands of boxes of food.
