The COVID-19 pandemic has proven that the need for hunger relief is more urgent than ever to help those within our community and our surrounding communities. From Monday, March 8 through Sunday, March 21 with the help of the Township of Verona, the Verona Police Department and Verona PBA, non-perishable food donations will be accepted for the Human Needs Food Pantry at the Verona Police Department and the Verona Community Center lobby during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.
Please consider donating any non-perishable items including breakfast cereal, canned tuna, all types of pasta and canned fruit, pet food, toilet paper, facial tissues, sanitizers, diapers, wipes, formula, and tall paper grocery bags with handles.
Please be sure to check the expiration date before donating. Along with non-perishable food donations, the Human Needs Food Pantry is also accepting monetary donations. A monetary donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated to help purchase food. You can make a secure, tax-deductible donation on its website.
Since the start of 2020, the Human Needs Food Pantry has added over 1,000 new households beyond its usual numbers. These numbers grow every week and will only go higher for the foreseeable future. Please consider donating non-perishable foods to help the Human Needs Food Pantry to help our neighbors in need!
