“These food distributions are a continuous lifeline for many who are still struggling financially, and they also help strengthen our entire community by helping to ensure that everyone feels included in the seasonal festivities, especially households with children and seniors,” said Commissioner Sergio Granados who also serves as Liaison to the Human Services Advisory Board. “We thank Village Super Market, Gargiulo Produce and all volunteers for their continued collaboration.”
