Eat Right!

Our Fall Zumba session continues to be a success.  We have a total of 44 registered participants. Our Eat Right Get Fit Zumba class meets for 1 hour every Tuesday nights  6:00 pm. Our community food pantry provides food bags each week for the Zumba participants to take home. The first 25 participants that show up to the class are given a ticket, and then they collect their bags at the end of class. The bags carry bananas, apples, unions, tomato, lettuce and much more! The participants have mentioned that they are “very grateful” to receive the bags of food each week because not only is the food nutritious, it also saves them money and they are very appreciative of that. The Interfaith Food Pantry is a community of neighbors helping neighbors committed to ending hunger and supporting self-sufficiency. Through community partners they provide food, education and resources to inspire confidence and hope to Morris County families in need. We are so proud to be able to provide this service to our community. We are delighted to have a partnership with the Interfaith Food Pantry!
