Jim McCaffrey and his staff at the New Hope McCaffrey’s Food Market have joined hands with the Delaware Valley Food Pantry to provide food for the people in need in the community.
The McCaffrey’s program is two- fold and currently all customers at McCaffrey’s can make a donation to DVFP at the register when they check out. All donations will be used to purchase food for the pantry.
Phase two of the program will be that customers of the New Hope McCaffrey’s Market can donate nonperishable food items, toiletries, paper goods beginning May 11 (in the designated bins in the store).
Bert Johnson, president of DVFP and Joe McGrath, director of operations at DVFP, thank McCaffrey and all of his staff for providing their much-needed assistance since the number of persons coming to the pantry has doubled since mid-March due to the pandemic-caused shutdown.
The Delaware Valley Food Pantry has been operating since 1955 and feeds over 1,000 people a month solely through donations.
If anyone in the community is in need of food, they may come to the DVFP pantry on Wednesdays from 2 to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon located at 1 Cherry St., Lambertville, N.J., next to the CVS.
Johnson and McGrath also thank all of the individuals and community organizations for their continued support. Donations can be made online at delawarevalleyfoodpantry.org, through Facebook or checks can be mailed to DVFP at PO Box 705, Lambertville, N.J. 08530.
