NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Hundreds of people across the Tri-State area were spending Monday helping others in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The New York City Coalition Against Hunger hosted its annual MLK Serve-A-Thon to help fight hunger.
Christy Walker, of the Bronx, helped prepare food for the hungry in Morningside Heights.
“All of my people that are coming here, I take care of them like they’re my children,” the Bronx native told WCBS 880’s Monica Miller.
Walker said she saw King speak and was inspired to live out his message of service and social justice.
