MCFOODS has long supported St. Paul's food pantry, an important resource in the Edison community for several decades. MCFOODS has recently seen a shortfall in donations and needs help stocking its shelves to help Middlesex County neighbors in need. The St. Paul's food pantry serves the community most mornings, Monday thru Friday.
