The Nutley Irish will be running a food drive for the St. Mary's Food Pantry at the March meeting.  The food pantry is accepting any donations that are given to them, but we asked for suggestions on what was needed.  Below is the list of items that they consider to be staples and are always in need:

Pancake Mix

Instant Mashed Potatoes (16oz or smaller)


Saltines (16oz)

Cereal (11-16oz)


Marinara Sauce

Peanut Butter & Jelly (smaller jars)

Beef or chicken stew
