MEDIEVAL TIMES PARTNERS WITH THE COMMUNITY FOODBANK OF NEW JERSEY TO LAUNCH POST-HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE TO HELP RESTOCK THE PANTRIES FOR THOSE IN NEED
 
Patrons pledging to donate non-perishable food items at the castle now through February 3 are eligible for a 40% discount on tickets
 
Medieval Times begins the New Year with a post-holiday food drive in partnership with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey as part of their “Chivalry In Action” program.  The food drive, which runs now through February 3, encourages patrons to drop off non-perishable food items in one of the collection bins located at the Lyndhurst castle.  As a thank you to those patrons who donate food items, they will be eligible to receive a 40% discount on Medieval Times tickets.

The holiday season is typically one of giving, and food pantries and other charitable
organizations often receive generous donations in the final weeks of the year.
However, once the holidays have passed, there is often a lull in donations and that can
be challenging for food pantries who rely on the generosity of others to assist people in
need.  To address that situation, Medieval Times is hoping this food drive can help
restock the shelves at the Community FoodBank of NJ.  “Chivalry In Action” is an ongoing program by Medieval Times that encompasses a wide range of community outreach, volunteerism and educational programming both in and  out of the castle.
