Town of Babylon Councilman Anthony Manetta recently joined with the Sons of Italy Constantino Brumidi Lodge to host the 6th annual Pasta and Sauce Food Drive, which has become a yearly initiative to help collect items to benefit the Town of Babylon Food Pantry.
The 2023 Pasta and Sauce Drive received a record amount of donations with over 1,000lbs of pasta and hundreds of jars of sauce collected. Councilman Manetta was joined by Department of Human Services Commissioner Traci Fonville and Deputy Commissioner Marcus Duffin to accept the donations at the Town Food Pantry, located at 1 Commerce Boulevard in Amityville.
“On behalf of the Town of Babylon, I would like to sincerely thank all of the businesses, organizations and residents who contributed to our most successful pasta and sauce driver yet,” said Councilman Manetta. “The Town of Babylon Food Pantry is an invaluable resource to our community and I am grateful to all who have helped keep their shelves stocked,” he added.
Councilman Manetta would also like to extend a special thank you to the Babylon Public Library, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, Constantino Brumidi Lodge 2211, Belfast Gastropub, all of which contributed to making this year’s drive a success.
