The MEND Hunger Relief Network will once again be stuffing its mobile food pantry — the Green Bean bus — with bottled water for deliver to its Newark food pantry distribution sites.
The bottled water is to aid residents who are suffering through Newark’s water crisis: recent citywide tests have found unhealthy levels of lead in Newark’s drinking water.
MEND will be accepting donations on Sunday, August 25, from 10 a.m. to noon outside the Millburn Free Public Library at 200 Glen Avenue in Millburn, NJ.

Help us Stuff the Bean with water, again! This time, we will park The Green Bean parked at the Millburn Free Public Library on Sunday morning. Stop by with donations of bottled water for our Newark pantries!
Need to get a workout in? Volunteer through the ticketing link to help us unload the collected water at the food pantry distribution site in Newark.
