Verona’s F.N. Brown Elementary School Wins Philanthropy Award

Table to Table, NJ’s first food rescue organization, has recognized F.N. Brown Elementary School in Verona with the 2022 Bernard and Geraldine Segal Foundation Award for Student Philanthropy for their support of a Bag a Lunch, Help a Bunch fundraiser. Of the many schools that participated, F.N. Brown was the top fundraiser.

The students raised enough funds to provide 31,530 meals for their hungry neighbors throughout Northern NJ. To raise funds, participants were asked to donate what they would spend on lunch for a day, week, month or more. For every dollar raised, 10 meals were provided to hungry neighbors. “We are very proud to be part of this initiative, as we know it has a positive impact on others in need,” said F.N. Brown Elementary School Principal Dr. Anthony Lanzo.
