Access to Healthy Food

The Boys & Girls Club of Clifton continues to make access to healthy food available to community members during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each week, for the past 10 weeks, the Club has supervised the preparation, coordination and distribution of over 800 bags of healthy food. Bags consists of a variety of foods (cereal, rice, pancake mix, fresh fruits and vegetables, canned goods), assembled by dedicated Club staff, Board members and volunteers. Every Friday, from Noon until 3:00–or sooner if bags ran out, Club, volunteers place the bags into car trunks, rain or shine.

To all who are modeling our mission to inspire and enable young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens, we thank you. We could not have done it without you.
