Over 100 families still in need as supplies have dwindled.

With record high numbers still coming to the South Brunswick Food Pantry for assistance, aid is needed to help the less fortunate enjoy a happy holiday season.

October brought an all-time high of 102 families. Social Services Director LouAnne Wolf said the pantry still has 100 boxes to make for families before the holidays arrive.

The following items are in need:
  • Boxed or bagged rice
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
  • Pasta sauce
  • Canned meats such as beef stew, chili, canned chicken etc.
  • Canned tuna
  • Oatmeal
