M.E.N.D. is a network of seventeen food pantries serving Essex County. Their “Healthy Pantries Healthy Patrons” program purchases and transports healthy food options to its member pantries. The Schumann Fund is providing a one-time grant to enable M.E.N.D. to rent transportation and hire a part-time driver to deliver fresh food to its members for 16 weeks.
