Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood residents collected extra holiday edibles (wrapped~unopened and not requiring refrigeration) that you might not want – fruitcake, specialty crackers, candies, cookies, nuts, trail mix – please consider giving it to the St. Paul’s, Paterson Food Pantry. The clients there would love to have some specialty treats to go along with the pasta, rice, and canned foods that are the mainstays of their diets. I know this is the time of year when we are all overstuffed, when the New Year’s Resolutions are getting ready to kick in, and when many of us have some such treats that are likely not to be consumed.

The Pantry Manager, Kimberly Arias, was overwhelmed. This very generous contribution will go a long way toward helping keep the shelves stocked at the Pantry, which is just minutes from Ridgewood.
