2 Donation Drop-Off Spots Available Thursday for 'Critically Low' Food Pantry

Long Valley Green Market, Fire House will host five-hour blocks for residents to help Washington Twp. Food Pantry.

As summer approaches the need for donations to local food pantries grows, including our very own Washington Township Food Pantry.

The food pantry, housed at the Long Valley Presbyterian Church, is at a critically low level, and is need of donations. Residents will have the opportunity to lend a hand this week with two drop-off points running simultaneously in the center of town.

Donations can be dropped off at the Long Valley Green Market at 20 Schooley’s Mountain Road, or the Long Valley Fire House on Fairview Avenue between 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 5.

The food pantry is looking for:

  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Canned tomatoes
  • Canned fruit
  • Cereal
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
  • Canned Tuna/Chicken/Ham/Spam
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Toiletries
  • Laundry detergent
  • Dish soap
  • Mayo/mustard/ketchup
  • Vinegar
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salad dressings
  • Zipper plastic bags (sandwich, quart, gallon sizes)

The food pantry asks that no big box store-sized items be donated when possible.

Currently serving some 70 families in the Washington Township area, the food pantry is assisting the largest group in its nearly 30-year history.
