Portraits by Michael StahlIt’s hard to feel independent when food for your family is hard to come by. To help out, Portraits by Michael Stahl in Montclair will open its studio for holiday portraits in exchange for groceries to donate to the Montclair Human Needs Food Pantry.

On Saturday, July 4, stop by the studio in your red, white and blue and they’ll create a portrait for you that you can share on your social media sites. The studio at 11 Midland Avenue—right on the parade route.

The food pantry needs non-perishable items in cans or boxes (no jars, please) and the food must not be past the expiration date.
