The Warwick Ecumenical Council, which sponsors the Warwick Food Pantry, located at the Warwick United Methodist Church at 135 Forester Ave., announces that the month of September has been designated as “Food Pantry Month.” The Food Pantry serves people in the Town of Warwick and clients can come in once a month to get necessary food items. Generous donations from the community have allowed the pantry to do this work for many years and the entire program is staffed by volunteers.
The Food Pantry has declared the month of September through Sun., Oct. 5 as “Food Pantry Month.” There will be collection canisters located in businesses throughout the village. ShopRite Supermarket, located at 153 Rte. 94 S. in Warwick, will show their continued support for the food pantry by allowing volunteers to hand out lists of items needed in the pantry. Pick up a list on your way into the store and then drop your donations in the box by the store exit.
ShopRite will also have a booth at the 2014 Applefest, which will be held on Sun., Oct. 5 in Warwick and will accept monetary donations, cash or checks, for the pantry.
