Help us keep the Food Pantry stocked! The RVNA Health Food Pantry is an invaluable resource in the area that provides nutritious food and personal items to area seniors. The items are delivered to their homes during visits from RVNA service staff and can be crucial for those that are home-bound or otherwise can’t easily get to the store! You can learn more about the Food Pantry HERE
We at The Coach Homes at Ridgefield are trying to do our part to support the mission my encouraging anyone coming to our weekend open houses to bring items that we will deliver to RVNA Health during the week.
Suggested food items are: whole grain products such as whole wheat bread, brown rice, pasta, oatmeal, cereal, low sodium crackers, nut butters or whole nuts, dried fruit, nutritional supplement drinks or protein bars, canned chicken or tuna, low-sodium canned products such as soups, beans, vegetables, tomato sauce; shelf-stable drinks such as V8 juices, Horizon milk boxes, almond milk, coconut milk, 100% fruit juices; individual snacks (fruit cups, pudding, pretzels, etc.)

Smaller sizes are appreciated as large containers can be difficult for patients to manage.
