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.

Norwood Food Pantry—Northvale Drop Off Point

Not surprisingly, the Norwood Food Pantry has been seeing increased traffic and they have requested a drop off point in Northvale. Starting on Monday, April 20, the drop off site will be the “Party Room” entrance (left hand side, rear of the building) of the American Legion building. The Legion is located at 190 Paris Avenue. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, the back door will be unlocked before 9:00 a.m. and will be locked at 4:00 p.m.

The Pantry only collects and distributes non-perishables. The most needed items at this time include:

Coffee, Juice, Cereal, Parmalat Milk, Tomato sauce, Mayonnaise, Ketchup, Mustard, Sugar, Napkins, Tissues, Toilet paper, Paper towels, Pancake Complete Mix, Pancake Syrup and Oatmeal.

Let’s support the pantry to the best of our abilities.
