WNY Distributes Food To Residents In Need


Times remain hard for many people following the pandemic.  Providing food, as costs rise, can be difficult for families.  In West New York on Thursday, the town continued an every other week program by distributing free food to those people in need.

Shockingly, upwards of 250 people braved cool temperatures to stand patiently on line at the West New York Little League Field to receive food supplies from this federal program, which may, according to rumors, be ending soon.

              The food is distributed through Hudson County to West New York.  It’s occurs every other week at a location around the town.  Besides the Little League Field, food gets distributed at Miller Park and on Dewey Avenue by the DPW.

Mayor Gabriel Rodriguez and the Board of Commissioners have taken advantage of the program since it was first announced during COVID.

              The municipality never knows what food will be provided, but on Thursday it consisted of potatoes, apples, peanut butter, canned goods, just to name some of what was distributed.

Everyone receiving the food items was grateful for the assistance.  Everything was distributed on a first come, first served basis.
