Meridian was proud to participate in this year’s Thanksgiving Food Drive to benefit Eva’s Village, an organization dedicated to helping feed the hungry and poor. Employees came together and donated a variety of canned or non-perishable food items from their pantries at home. This year, we managed to fill 3 box loads of items for the non-profit organization!
Eva’s Village was founded in 1982 and is located in Paterson NJ. They provide hot meals for up to 400 homeless and working poor per day, 365 days a year. In addition to these lunches, they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to those staying in their outpatient recovery and sheltering programs. The total output of their kitchen is 1,200 hot meals per day with more than 438,000 hot meals served annually.
Although the food drive has ended, you can still help Eva’s Village. If you would like to learn how, please visit their website at www.evasvillage.org.
