Each year members of the Oradell-Emerson Rotary Club organize a food drive to benefit local families and the Center for Food Action. Their latest collection will take place outside of the Volk Leber Funeral Home on Kinderkamack Road on Saturday, 10am to 2pm.
The turkey and frozen soup drive items will be delivered by Rotary members to the Center for Food Action, which in turn will be distributed to local Bergen County residents in need.
Some of the most needed items include supermarket gift cards, canned meat, tuna and chicken, canned soup, canned vegetables, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, boxes of cereal, dry milk, canned fruit, instant potatoes, 100% juice, dental hygiene products and soap, baby formula and diapers (sizes 4, 5 and 6).
In prior years, the collection's have been held at the historic Blauvelt Mansion with the help of the River Dell and Emerson High School's Interact Clubs, Felice's Restaurant on Kinderkamack Road and at Volk Leber over the summer.
