The 2022 Great Northern NJ Turkey Take

Table to Table, “New Jersey’s first and most successful food rescue organization,” debuts its second annual Great Northern New Jersey Turkey Take with Table to Table I-Rescue. This Thanksgiving initiative allows residents in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Passaic counties to personally donate and deliver a frozen turkey (or more) to local food pantries and group homes.

The organization tells Pascack Press that residents can download the Table to Table I-Rescue app, which is powered by Food Rescue Hero and available on iOS and Google Play, or they can make a donation to help Table to Table deliver more meals throughout the year to those in need. Julie Kinner, Table to Table’s vice president of operations, says, “What better way to express your gratefulness this Thanksgiving than to make the holiday special for hungry neighbors throughout New Jersey.”

Holiday ‘Make It, Take It’ Workshop Dec. 1

The Garden Club of Harrington Park invites you to its annual Make It and Take It Holiday Workshop on Thursday, Dec. 1, at 7:30 p.m. upstairs in the Harrington Park Library, 10 Herring St. The Garden Club has members who reside in numerous towns other than Harrington Park, including Westwood, Hillsdale, Washington Township, and Montvale, and meetings are open to guests from all towns.

The club will furnish basic supplies such as plastic containers for centerpieces, fresh greens, and floral foam. If you wish to add any personal doo-dads, colored ribbon, or extra greens from your garden, feel free to bring them.

Pre-registration is required to ensure that there will be plenty of materials for everyone. To reserve your spot and for more information, phone Gibney at (201) 768-2615 or email There is no fee, but if you are not a member, a donation to help cover the cost of materials would be appreciated.
