RVNA seeks donations for its food pantry

The Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Association (RVNA) is in need of food and toiletry donations for the RVNA Food Pantry. The Pantry, which resides on the first floor of the RVNA building at 27 Governor Street, supports home-bound RVNA patients in need of particular items.  RVNA clinicians and home care aides deliver the nutritious food and much-needed supplies on their regular patient visits.

Suggested donations include: whole grain products such as whole wheat bread, brown rice, oatmeal, crackers, and similar gluten-free items; shelf-stable milks and 100% fruit juice; nut butters or whole nuts; dried fruit; nutritional supplement drinks or protein bars; canned chicken or tuna. (RVNA currently has a healthy supply of canned vegetables.) Household items include toiletries, paper products, and cleaning and laundry supplies. Smaller sizes are appreciated as large containers can be difficult for patients to manage.

Donations may be brought to RVNA, 27 Governor Street, Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. For a complete list of items needed, please visit: ridgefieldvna.org/foodpantry/.
