Thank You Inserra Supermarkets

We would like to thank Inserra Supermarkets, Inc. for their very generous pledge to the Norwood Food Pantry. In this time of increasing local food insecurity, the company will contribute $1,000 worth of products to the pantry. On May 2 and thanks to the Northvale DPW, products with a value of $500 were picked up at the Northvale ShopRite and delivered to the new pantry drop off point at the Northvale American Legion.

The corporate and Northvale ShopRite staffs did a great job of matching the products contributed with the current needs of the pantry. Again, we thank Mr. Larry Inserra for making this happen.

The Norwood Food Pantry serves the needs of all Northern Valley towns.
