Join us for the second annual Green Bean Gala, a cocktail reception to benefit MEND!

This year’s event will feature gourmet tasting stations, specialty drinks (Green Bean-tinis, anyone?), auctions, music, and lots of great company and conversations! Plus, we are celebrating 40 years of making a difference together!

Named for MEND’s school-bus-turned-mobile-food-pantry, funds raised will help strengthen and support a hunger relief network of 20 food pantries, and provide more fresh and healthy food in underserved communities throughout Essex County, New Jersey.
