Dozens receive fresh meat, vegetables at Westchester food pantry
ELMSFORD — The Westchester Food Pantry is taking their operation on the road, handing out free food to those in need Thursday.
A group of over 50 people waited in line to fill up their baskets with vegetables, fruits, and meats.
Kristina Magana with the organization “Feeding Westchester,” says their mission is to end hunger in the county.
“And this really helps to feed the community who is currently going hungry which unfortunately is nearly about 200,000 of our neighbors here in Westchester County,” Magana said.
Out of those 200,000 people, 60,000 thousand are children that are currently going hungry. But as Thanksgiving approaches, Magana says they’ve had many extra hands helping to distribute their food. And with one hand helping the other, these families will go home and will have a meal on their table.
