Food pantry opens in Paterson to serve veterans

The more than 700 square feet room inside the Gordon Canfield Plaza Residence has shelves after shelves of canned food items for Passaic County veterans and military families. Officials opened the Great Falls Rotary Foundation Military Assistance Pantry during a ceremony on Monday morning.

 

James Williams, a veteran of the Vietnam War, welcomed the new food pantry that has the potential to serve thousands of veterans living in the 16 towns of Passaic County. There are 27,000 veterans, who call Passaic County home, according to congressman Bill Pascrell.

 

“This is what we need. There are a lot of veterans going through hard times,” said Williams, 68, (pictured).

The food pantry is the work of the Great Falls Rotary Foundation and the Passaic County Board of Realtors. The Paterson Housing Authority has donated the space to house the pantry in room 204 of the senior housing building.
