Town of Babylon Councilman Anthony Manetta recently joined with Town Clerk Gerry Compitello and the Sons of Italy Constantino Brumidi Lodge to host the annual Pasta and Sauce Food Drive, where over 200 pounds of pasta and 85 jars of sauce was collected. Councilman Manetta and Town Clerk Compitello were joined by Supervisor Rich Schaffer and Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez to tally the donations and thank all who contributed. The pasta and sauce collected as a result of this initiative will be donated to the Town of Babylon Food Pantry, which benefits families in need throughout the town.
“I would like to sincerely thank everyone who took part in the annual pasta and sauce drive, which was an overwhelming success,” said Councilman Manetta. “The Town of Babylon Food Pantry is one of our key resources and I am proud that we were able to help them keep their shelves stocked for those in our community who unfortunately struggle to put food on the table.”
Councilman Manetta would also like to extend a special thank you to Lindenhurst Memorial Library and director Lisa Kropp for providing a drop-off location for area residents to help contribute to the effort.
