September is Hunger Action Month and with the holiday season right around the corner Island Harvest is reaching out to the public for help.
The Marines unloaded more than 2,000 turkeys donated by Stop & Shop for the upcoming holidays.
The Hunger Action Network report shows that two-thirds of food pantries and soup kitchens have reported a drop in food donations while the majority of them said they served more people last year.
Glenn Richter arrived at a West Side synagogue on Monday to collect surplus bagels — fresh nutritious bagels — to donate to the poor. However, under a new edict from the mayor’s food police he can no longer donate the food to city homeless shelters.
The shelves are empty at the Packanack Community Church, but officials there remain hopeful as donations slowly came in on Sunday morning.
