BAYONNE, NJ - Bayonne City officials joined representatives of Inserra Shop-Rite of Bayonne to help “bag hunger” earlier this week. The effort came in conjunction with the store’s food drive being held to benefit the Bayonne Food Bank.

In addition to hosting the food drive as part of their Partners in Caring program, Shop-Rite donated $1,000 worth of non-perishable food to help people in need. 

Customers  have until Friday to purchase non-perishable items such as canned tuna fish; canned or boxed pasta; pasta sauce; canned vegetables; canned fruits; pudding cups; 100% fruit boxes; boxed cereal; oatmeal; breakfast bars; non-perishable macaroni and cheese; chunky soups; peanut butter; jelly; rice; and canned beans, and drop them off cards in what Inserra calls ‘a safe and socially distanced setting’ at the Bayonne Shop-Rite.” Gift cards may also be purchased and donated.
