FAIR LAWN, N.J. — More than 200 guests and 27 restaurants brought the Fair Lawn diners tastes of their town with samples of local cuisine on Monday night.

The seventh-annual "A Taste of Our Town" at the community center was the largest yet and raised money for Fair Lawn's food pantry, Chamber of Commerce President Jack Donohue said.

"We've got a terrific turnout both for restaurants and for patrons," Donohue said. "This year more than ever."

Most years around 16 restaurants participate, he said.

The event usually brings in more than $3,000 for the food pantry, coordinator Liz Twiggs said.

"The support of the community is huge," Twiggs told Daily Voice. "We exist on private donations. Food donations and monetry donations like the chamber gives us, that's what keeps us going."

The food came from all different countries of origins as guests sampled the cuisine while supporting meals for the needy.

Mayor John Cosgrove said Fair Lawn's restaurants are always willing to help.

"It was a five-star night," Cosgrove said.
