Island Harvest gives out healthy meals to those in need in Valley Stream
The food drive was one of several held across Long Island for those who are out of work and struggling to make ends meet during the COVID-19 crisis.
“We are now dealing with the economic ramifications,” says Nassau County Executive Laura Curran.
Each family was given boxes of food that should last one week. It's full of fresh meat, fresh vegetables, dairy and canned goods.
Many of the 150 volunteers who handed out bags of food and loaded cars said they were grateful to be able to help.
"Everyone is a different piece of the puzzle and we all come together,” said one volunteer. “That's why we are Long Island."
