Mayor Don Purdy, Sheriff Frank Balis, Galloway School Administrator Annette Giaquinto and others bagged groceries at Galloway Shoprite today to bring attention to the many that need food assistance. In Association with Shoprite, the Food Bank and General Mills, the group forms “Partners in Caring”. The Mayor and Sheriff have been participating since the beginning of the event 3 years ago. Annette Giaquinto said this is her first year and that residents of Galloway should be aware that almost half our children qualify for free or reduced lunch now. She is very concerned about the availability of food to Galloway children.
Andy Applegate and Nick Mongono of Shoprite helped organize today’s event.
