Westfield Food Drives for November 2019

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Select NJ# 9483506

After the sugar rush of Halloween, it's time to take a breath and take stock of all that we have to be grateful for in our lives. Thankfully, most of us count a roof over our heads and food on the table among our many blessings. Unfortunately, not everyone in our area can say that. One thing that makes me proud of the community in which I live is that we never shy away from a chance to give back. The Boys Scouts and our local firefighters both hold Westfield food drives this month. Please give generously to both.

This month, both the Boy Scouts and our firefighters host their own Westfield Food Drives to ensure that no family goes hungry this holiday season.

Westfield Food Drives

Scouting for Food

Click here for an instant "No Strings Attached" valuation of your home.On November 2nd, members of our Westfield Boy Scout troop plan on leaving donation bags at local residences. Place non-perishable food items inside. Then, leave them out on your front porch for pickup between 9 am and 12:30 pm on November 9th. This counts towards the scouts' community service badge.

All food gathered during the Scouting for Food event goes directly to Holy Trinity's food pantry. Once the scouts deliver these food donations, sorting begins at the church. If you'd like to volunteer for sorting duty, contact the church at (908) 232-8137 today.

Westfield Firefighters' Food Drive

Between now and December 1st, our firefighters will be collecting food donations for their Westfield food drive. Simply drop off non-perishable food items at their North Ave West headquarters or Central Ave fire station between 8 am and 8 pm any day of the week. On the 1st, they deliver these donations to local churches and other organizations. In turn, those groups distribute to families in need in time for the holidays.

What to Donate

Some of the items our food pantries need include:

  • Beans
  • Broth or stock
  • Canned meat of any kind (chicken, beef, tuna)
  • Cereal
  • Dried fruit
  • Milk (powdered or boxed, shelf-stable)
  • Honey
  • Olive or Canola oil
  • Pasta
  • Pasta sauce
  • Peanut/almond/cashew butter (any nut butter will do)
  • Rice (white, brown, wild)
  • Rolled Oats
  • Seeds
  • Soup
  • Stew
  • Vegetables

Make sure all items are either canned or dry. Nothing perishable, please. Thank you.
