YOU CAN-CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
In light of recent pressing economic circumstances, please consider picking-up an extra can or two at Shoprite, in order to restock the NFSB Food pantry with staples to boost support of our neighbors in need. The canned items in greatest need are tuna, chicken, tomato sauce, fruit and soup. Donation items may be dropped at the NFSB Pantry, 169 Chestnut Street, Nutley, NJ. For more information, call 973-667-1884. Thank you for your generosity!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SNAP BENEFITS NOW AVAILABLE
Due to the federal government shutdown, you will be receiving your February Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits early. If you received a SNAP benefit in January and were scheduled to receive SNAP in February, your February benefits will be available on your Families First card on January 17.
This is your benefit for the entire month of February, so please budget with that in mind. Please contact Nutley Family Service Bureau if you require immediate assistance or if you have questions/concerns. NFSB Main Office: 973-667-1884.
The Pantry is the recipient of the generosity from individuals, civic organizations, churches and Nutley Township organizations. The Boy Scouts of America have been a long-time supporter and over the past several years their Scouting for Food Drive has raised over 50,000 non-perishable food items, making them the largest single contributing organization to our pantry. We are additionally grateful to Greenutley, Nutley Farmers Market, Nutley Community Garden, The Giving Garden and NFSB Girl’s Leadership Garden for their support. Nutley ShopRite sponsorship of NFSB Food Pantry via their Partner’s in Caring Grant provides staples throughout the year.
