At the next general meeting of the Bergen County section of the National Council of Jewish Women, members and volunteers will pack 500 child-friendly, healthy goody bags. They are to be donated to the Center for Food Action for distribution. The meeting will be at Temple Emeth, 1666 Windsor Road in Teaneck, on January 17, at 12:30 p.m.
The CFA distributes the snack packs to children in eight local elementary schools. Teachers discreetly place the packs into the students’ backpacks when they are out of the classrooms. Snack packs include juices, mac and cheese, cereals, energy bars, and other healthy foods. The snack packs are part of an effort to reduce childhood hunger in local neighborhoods.
Members and guests are welcome to volunteer.
