A new mobile food pantry is now serving communities in need around Westchester.
County Executive George Latimer joined several other leaders for a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday at St. Peter's Church in Port Chester.
It's happening during "National Community Development Block Grant Week" which is appropriate because through that program, the county was able to get federal money to help address food insecurity.
The truck will travel to different areas to deliver food to people in need.
“Not everybody can get to the food pantry. Not everyone has a car. Not everyone can even walk  - so to provide this type of service is invaluable,” says Michael Mills, chair of the Urban City Council.
Westchester County says thousands of people will benefit from this van.
