Pop-up food pantry distributes 200 boxes of groceries

Last Tuesday, Councilwoman Adrienne Adams teamed up with the Met Council to distribute 200 boxes of groceries and face coverings to local families and seniors in South Ozone Park.

Volunteers from ACE Programs for the Homeless assisted in ensuring social distancing and coordination.

The pop-up food pantry helped families get groceries without risking a trip to the supermarket.

“Our community has been hit so hard by the pandemic and Tuesday’s distribution of food and face coverings was an important effort given the current demands on food pantries,” Adams said.
