Thanks to a partnership between the Piermont Civic Association and Canzona’s Market, the SOCSD Food Pantry will receive bi-weekly shipments of groceries totaling $1,800 to support roughly 60 South Orangetown families in need. Canzona’s Market, a family-owned business in Piermont, packs and prepares the groceries, which are sold to the PCA at a significantly discounted price to be donated to the Food Pantry.
“This partnership is tremendously beneficial for our school district community,” said SOCSD Family Engagement Center Coordinator AJ Walker. “With the generosity of the PCA and Canzona’s Market, we are able to stock more food items and keep our pantry sustainable for families.”
“The kind-hearted folks at Canzona’s Market and the hard work and dedication of the SOCSD Food Pantry is truly inspiring,” added PCA Secretary Joe Serra (pictured). “We’ve worked with Canzona’s Market to supply two shipments of groceries and will continue to do so every other week to help feed families who are struggling financially in the SOCSD community.”
Donations for the SOCSD Food Pantry may be dropped off between 4:00PM to 6:00PM every other Thursday at the former Tappan Zee Elementary School located at 561 Route 9W in Piermont; the next drop-off date is December 2.
