Ocean Bay Cornerstone Community Center in Arverne has been organizing weekly food banks during the COVID-19 pandemic, a crisis that has exacerbated food insecurity. Here is Program Director Deborah Hoyle (and staff member Darryl Devore photo-bombing!) getting ready for the food distribution. As this photo demonstrates, we want to convey loud and clear that The Child Center is here for you during this unprecedented time, that it is a team effort, and we do this work with as much joy in our hearts as the moment allows.
Food distribution occurs at Ocean Bay Wednesdays at 1 p.m. No registration required. We welcome you to come by.
All of our Cornerstone Community Centers are distributing food to those who need it, including grab-and-go meals (calling ahead required) throughout the week. You can call the center nearest you for more information.
