After the holidays plus a COVID surge closed the Roosevelt Island Food Pantry for three weeks, RIDA says they are bringing it back on Friday. And City Council Member Julie Menin joins in with a KN95 face mask giveaway.
“The RIDA Food Pantry will be open this Friday,” said Disabled Association President Wendy Hersh. “City Council Member Julie Menin will also be distributing KN95 masks at the RIDA Food Pantry in the 546 Main Street lobby from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. Let’s keep our island safe!”
Food Pantry hours will run from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m
Menin’s team was also here, last Friday, with a mask giveaway.
