RCAH And Rockland County Organize The First Drive-thru Food Distribution To Pantries
With the help of County Executive Ed Day’s office and the Rockland County Youth Bureau, volunteers wearing masks and gloves practiced social distancing and distributed over 8,700 pounds of food to more than 12 food pantries and feeding programs.
Coordinator Anita Dreichler said the 40 food banks in Rockland face rapidly rising demand.
From the CBS News report, Anita was quoted:
“It’s people who’ve lost their jobs. It’s also people that have to stay home and take care of a loved one, or their children are home and they need to stay have to stay home for that. So there are many reasons why people can’t be working and they need extra help right now.”
