As all are aware, the COVID-19 Pandemic and Stay in Place Orders have had an unimaginable impact on our economy. Unfortunately, the shut-down, lay-offs, furloughs, and business closures have affected many in our local community and beyond. In Livingston, Neighbors Helping Neighbors has been helping an ever-rising number of families in need. Their counterparts at food pantries and soup kitchens throughout Northern New Jersey are experiencing an unprecedented demand that they just cannot meet.

Working with Neighbors Helping Neighbors and other groups, including the Livingston Clergy Council, the Membership of the Livingston Fire Department is organizing food donation drops that will be held once a month for the foreseeable future in an effort to ensure that supplies never run out. We are certain that our community will rise to the occasion and help. Most everyone can pick up a few extra items at the supermarket while shopping.

Please join us in this effort! Our initial collection dates and times are listed below. To ensure the safety of all, residents will be able to pull up, unlock the trunk, rear hatch, or rear doors and the donations can be removed without anyone exiting their vehicle.

 

 

All donations should be canned/boxed non-perishable foods. Some popular suggested items are listed:

 

Cereal                         Canned Fruits                         Apple Sauce                           Oatmeal

Peanut Butter            Jelly                                         Tomato Sauce                         Kids’ Snacks

Baked Beans               Canned Vegetables                Rice                                         Granola Bars

Canned Chicken         Chicken Noodle Soup            Canned Soup                          Breakfast Bars

Laundry Detergent    Mac and Cheese                     Dish Detergent                       Napkins

Paper Plates               Plastic Utensils                       Boxed Pasta                            Water/Soda

 

Together, we can help others get through this difficult time…..
