The Rutherford Education Association will host the March Madness Food & Fun Day to benefit the Rutherford Food Pantry on Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The rain date is March 30th.


The event will be held at the Washington School gym, located at 89 Wood Street, Rutherford, NJ, and will be staffed by members of the REA. The price of admission is 2 items for the Rutherford Food Pantry per adult, and 1 item per child.


This event is a Pride in Public Education activity carried out by the REA. Volunteering to organize this event is one of the many ways that Rutherford School District employees give back to the Rutherford community.
