SOMERS POINT – St. Joseph Regional School Principal Ted Pugliese said his school has long partnered with nearby Grace Lutheran Church to help fill the shelves of its food pantry. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the need to keep the shelves stocked is even greater. St. Joseph’s families sent in items the pantry needed like peanut butter and jelly, tuna fish, macaroni and cheese and much more. Pugliese was not certain of the exact number of items, but said the food pantry reported that the amount of food they received would keep them stocked and ready to help local families for several days. 

The food drive needed a little muscle from Ralph Triboletti Jr. of Somers Point to help load the vans with non-perishable food items donated to the Grace Lutheran Church from St. Josephs Regional School.
